Here's a super simple recycling craft for Passover that I just whipped up, maybe to inspire my kids to make some more, but certainly to inspire you to do the same at your house! A recycled soda bottle and CD Eliyahu's cup decorated with washi tape (or a myriad of things that you have on hand) is a fun craft for all ages, and for the little ones, an adult can assemble the cup and then hand it over for the decorating.
Best of all, you very likely have all the supplies on hand! So make a bunch of these to add some excitement for the coming holiday, and you can even use them as little vases if you like.
- a recycled soda bottle
- 3 soda bottle caps
- a CD
- washi tape
- hot glue or gorilla glue (to be used by an adult)
How To: Cut the bottom portion plus some off your bottle, make a cut with a knife and then finish cutting with sharp scissors. Decorate the CD before assembling, and one can decorate the cup as well, if desired.
Glue it all together in this order: CD, bottle cap right side down, bottle cap upside down, bottle cap right side down, bottle. You will have to use glue sparingly if you don't want it to leak out the sides, but if it does, that is okay, the main thing is to make a secure join. Decorate the cup with washi tape, and the neck as well. One can of course glue on buttons and little pom poms as well, or do tissue paper collage.
That is all for now, a huge list of things to do for Passover still awaits!
