6 Fun Ways To Learn and Play With Chalk Painted Bottle Caps

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.

SuppliesWhat I used:
 
plastic bottle caps of of milk jugs and juice bottles
spray chalk paint
chalk
paper
marker
 
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.

1.  Name recognition
