Step by Step
Once your mum or dad have finished with an old empty plastic bottle, wash it out to make sure it’s clean, and dry. Top tip a few different sizes of bottles or containers are good.
Cut up strips of tissue paper and cover your bottles in different coloured tissue paper. Top tip, if the old bottle has a coloured label on it, you might want to cover that bottle in the same coloured tissue paper. You may have to repeat the layers so it fully covered.
Once that is dry it’s time to draw a face and some hair and some clothes onto your bottle. If the bottle has a lid shape, it’s a good idea to make this a hat.
When you’re happy with your drawing you can start painting!
And when it’s finally all dry stick on some googly eyes!
There you have it a homemade Plastic bottle buddy! Why not make lots of them to play with!
