Recycling household objects for experiments

This post is in honor of Earth Day.

I’m not a crafty recycler. I can’t turn household recyclable waste into beauiful children’s object d’art like on The Crafty Crow.

What I can do is repurpose them for science purposes:

My favorite uses:

Starbucks Frappacino glass bottles into a water xylophone
Photobucket

Glass pickle jars into beakers
Photobucket

“Bath salt” or spice test tubes and holder into…well, test tubes…for observing root growth:

Photobucket

Film canisters into sound boxes

Photobucket

Toiletry bottles into scent bottles (see above link).

Photobucket

Pop/water bottles into Discovery Bottles
Photobucket

Photobucket

Plastic food containers into toadlet feeding stations (well, that was the plan anyway) or bug boxes (with holes poked in it for breathing).

Photobucket

Happy Earth Day!
