In school, my son had a science project that was to create a sculpture from recycling items. He decided that he wanted to make a car. Here is what we used:
4 Computer CD's from the mail
1 Juice bottle
1 soda pop can and the tabs from the top
Cardboard pieces from a cereal box.
We primed all of the pieces with Kilz primer. Then, we painted each piece. Finally, we glued all the pieces together and added some detail with glitter. I always say that I love trash to treasure projects. This was a truly great craft in the trash to treasure catagory! I think I had as much fun doing this project as he did.
