What you will need for each truck

 
  • Recycled household bottle and lid
  • PVA glue
  • 4 lids from old bottles or containers (all the same size)
  • Marker pens in different colours
  • Decorating objects - pipe cleaners, stickers, glitter etc
 

To make your recycled truck


1. First decide what kind of truck you could make with your bottle eg a fire truck, a logging truck, an ambulance etc.

2. Glue on the lid at the top of the bottle with the PVA glue.

3. Turn your bottle on its side to form the body. Then take the 4 lids and glue them onto your bottle's sides to make the wheels.

4. Decorate your truck with the pipe cleaners, stickers and marker pens to create windows, doors, roof racks etc - you decide!
 
5. Why stop at one truck! Use your recycled materials and make more trucks to add to the fleet.
