Do your kids watch Annedroids? If not, you need to start watching it ASAP. It is a really great show for kids. So many kids shows these days include rude characters and could very easily pass bad manners on to kids. Its actually kind of crazy what topics they cover as well. WithAnnedroids which is available on Amazon, you don’t have to worry about any of that. Anne, an adventurous young scientist, and her friends are all courteous kids who love to turn trash into treasure. They have many adventures in the junkyard, and where most people see trash but they see posibility! Today I have a quick craft to share with you that was inspired by the new Amazon show, Annedroids. It’s a Recycled Bottle Cap Frame the kids will love!
The kids asked me to collect bottle caps so they could make something cool like Anne makes. I think they wanted something metal, since a lot of the junk in the junk yard is metal. Bottle caps were easy enough to come across. In a well ventilated area, you’ll want to spay paint the bottle caps. Its up to you if you’d rather do this or get the kids involved in this step. You can so this in what ever color you would like or a combination of colors. We chose purple.
Then we just took a wooden frame from the craft supply store and painted it a lighter shade of purple. Then we glued spray painted bottle caps around the frame.
Then all there is left to do is pick a photo, and put in the frame. It amazes me how creative kids can be and how they are able to take trash (I literally dug them out of the trash can) and turn them into an awesome picture frame. They were so proud of their creation and I have a feeling that this will not be the last bottle cap frame we will be making!
Watching Androids and then making a recycled craft inspired by the show made for such a fun saturday afternoon. It is so fun seeing kids express their creativity. It really gives you an amazing sence of how innocently they view the world world around them as well as their personality.
