Plastic Bottle Flowers
5 to 10s
A fun way to create painted flowers before you send left-over plastic bottles off for recycling.
: 10 minutes
: Under 5s, 5s to 10s
Plastic bottles of various size
Plastic tray or plate
Sheets of paper
Brushes (to make stalks and leaves)
Pens and pencils (to make stalks and leaves)
Pour ready-made poster paint or acrylic paint into plastic or glass tubs.
Lay out your paper or card. We used a few different sizes and colours.
Using the bottom of the bottle, dip it into the paint and then onto your paper.
Dip the top of the bottle in a different colour to make the centre of the flower.
Draw stalks and leaves in green paint with paint brushes, or draw them in pencil or pen.
You can use different sizes and shapes of bottle for different effects. We thought this red one wouldn't work well, but with some extra additions it started to look quite pretty.
