After the film canister projects the next item in the basket to create a project using them was medication bottles. Seems we get a lot of them and they were just the right size for a special bug project. Not just any old bug catching box these, but we turned the bottles into bugs that could hide a bug or two with a twist of the lid.
I provided a fairly good sized bottle with the tops that turn over so they are easily removed by kids. They then decorated the tops with big pom poms and added fun foam or construction paper wings, chenille stems for antennae and legs or other appendages and of course, eyes--self stick or wiggly. Just the thing to take to the park and catch a few bugs.
