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
Glass pickle jars into beakers
“Bath salt” or spice test tubes and holder into…well, test tubes…for observing root growth:
Film canisters into sound boxes
Toiletry bottles into scent bottles (see above link).
Pop/water bottles into Discovery Bottles
Plastic food containers into toadlet feeding stations (well, that was the plan anyway) or bug boxes (with holes poked in it for breathing).
Happy Earth Day!
