We started saving caps off bottles and food pouches almost a year ago. You just never know what fun ways might come up to use them. I love taking our trash and finding fun ways to reuse it. I have been thinking of how to use them in a new way. I also love an excuse to get my chalk paint out. So one day when I sat my bottle of chalk paint next to a cup of bottle caps the idea hit me, PAINT the caps. What to do with them once I painted them I was not sure. I had a few ideas racing through my head. I set out to start by painting the caps and would let the rest come to me then.
6 Fun Ways To Learn and Play With Chalk Painted Bottle Caps
SuppliesWhat I used:
plastic bottle caps of of milk jugs and juice bottles
spray chalk paint
What I did:
I placed the bottle tops down in a cardboard box (I got from under our case of waters). I applied several coats of paint to the caps and bottom of the caps. I let them dry between applications of the spray paint. Once they were dry I brought them in. Then I started setting up ways that we would use them.
Here are 6 way you can use chalk painted bottle caps
My 4 yr old just couldn’t wait to start playing and learning. He started playing tic tac toe before I was through making all of the learning sheets for us. We have been having a lot of fun with our chalk painted bottle tops and hope to find more ways to use them too. The 6 ways we have used them:
1. Name recognition
2. Going over ABC’s
3. Practice sight words and spelling
4. Go over shapes
6. Playing tic tac toe
What would you do with them?
