Learning with 2 kids and a mommy

Bottle Caps Art

Bottle Caps Art

It’s been raining for the past few days and we have spent one of the rainy days at home working on a recycling project using bottle caps.

Every time, after finishing bottles of drinks, the bottle caps will be removed, washed and kept in a container. It’s been pretty useful for us so far especially when it comes to craft sessions. This time round we made a painting with the use of it.

Smarties were being given the freedom to choose what theme they wanted. They chose sea and birds. We used the backing of the drawing block for the painting as normal drawing paper would be too thin and fragile to hold the weight of the bottle caps.

As you can see we have only 1 cardboard to work on. Both of them have to co-operate and work cohesively with each other in order to complete this artwork.

On top of that, they also learn about taking a turn and…

planning out their tasks well on who does what.

I would say the teamwork for this project was impressive. NO fighting, NO arguing, NO conflicts among them. Although both of them have some opinions on how things should be going at some points, but they managed to communicate well and get it done in agreement.

A job very well done indeed! Thumbs up from mummy!
