Reuse and Repurpose

Luke had a homework assignment last September for Science.  He had to use something that we thought was garbage and find a new use for it.  We searched and searched on the internet for a project that would be easy enough for a non-crafty family and have all the things laying around the house.

We finally settled on one.  The problem was we didn’t have the star ingredient, empty 2 litter bottles of pop.  The problem was solved with grandma going to the landfill and finding 2 for us.  IMG_8543-editedUsing some leftover car spray paint, Luke set to work coloring the bottles.  They were a little streaky but for his first time spray painting, not too bad.  Then with some cardboard we had in the recyclable bin, a few old play necklaces and some used tissue paper we made a jet pack.  IMG_8554For the past 6 months they have gotten a lot of use out of it so I would say it was a pretty good re-purposed project.
