Print Painting with Recyclables
Well, we couldn’t just get rid of all of those unique recyclable bottles from our play dough impressions activity. And with Earth Day on it’s way, we’re still focusing on using our recycled materials for our art. (Check out more Earth Day ideas here!) So we decided to explore shapes and print painting with our plastic bottles.
Exploring Shapes & Print Panting with Plastic Bottles
I’ve seen on other blogs that water bottle print painting makes fun flower petal shapes. So we did some of that. But we also used different size and shaped bottles, too, to explore the shapes and prints that they would make.
It was fun to overlap our prints and nest them inside one another, too! We stuck with a limited color palette of red and orange to unify the finished painting.
I think we’re going to use our finished art as gift wrap, but it would look cute trimmed down and mounted as wall art, too.
Have you ever used plastic bottles for print painting? What would you do with the finished painting if you were us?Thrift Share Monday, Contest Corner, Made by Me Monday, Just Something I Whipped Up, Made by Little Hands Monday, Tasty Tuesdays, Frugal & Fabulous Giveaways, Tuesday Tots, Tip Me Tuesday, Get Your Craft on Tuesday, Made by Me Wednesday, Sugar & Spice Wednesday, Kids Get Crafty Wednesday, The Mommy Club Wednesdays, Artsy Corner Thursday, It’s Playtime Thursday, Thursday Giveaway Linky, What Are Little Boys Made of Thursday, The Weekly Kids Co-op, Read Explore Learn Friday, For the Kids Friday, Kitchen Fun and Craft Friday, Bonggamom’s Friday Finds, Delicately Constructed Fridays, Freebie Friday, Pin It Friday, Show & Share Saturday, Share it Saturday, Super Saturday Giveaway Link-up, The Sunday Showcase, The Sunday Parenting Party, Around the Blogosphere, Afterschool Express, and Link & Learn Sunday.
