Can't Bottle Creativity

Recently looked around #OurSTEAMCafe. Noticed all the empty containers from bottled water that I use for coffee in the morning. A large pile was accumulating in the corner. I decided to hang a note, "Bottles are for makerspace not trash." Then I challenged 2 third grade classes to consider what could they possibly upcycle a bottle into if given the opportunity. Their inspired ideas included: pet bowls, dog houses, bird houses, robots, race cars, planters, and other ingenious suggestions. I look forward to finding a time to let students come to #OurSTEAMCafe and armed with craft supplies, transform the ever growing collection of half gallon bottles into masterpieces.
