Fun & Easy Bottle Cap Bug Craft – (Louise)

Easy Bug Craft
Easy Bug Craft

How cute are these! And so easy too!!!

Supplies needed:

  • Plastic bottle caps (cleaned well)
  • Plastic spoons
  • Glue dots (found at any craft supplier)
  • Plastic to make wings (I used the insert from a reusable shopping bag but we’ve used old milk bottles before too)
  • Permanent pen (to mark out wings)
  • Scissors (to cut out wings)
  • Kindy Glitz or other craft supplies to decorate wings
  • Googly eyes

Mark out some wings using the permanent marker then cut them out.

Then have the kids glue the wings and eyes onto either the bottle cap or spoon. Then it’s as simple as decorating the wings and giving them a name. We also glued them onto some long paddle pop sticks to insert into the garden.

The concentration…

  2. I really enjoy this craft it is perfect for what I was looking for. I am a activities director at a campground (on a volunteer basis) and I have accumulated lots of recycled stuff, bottle caps being one of them and did not know what to do with them. The children will love this, thank you so much for posting.

  3. l do art in a 3rd grade class. l think these will be fun for the kids after taking those standardized tests. Thanks for posting.
