Bottle Bank~This little piggy (bank) started off at the market as a bleach bottle. To make one, rinse an empty bottle with hot soapy water; let dry. Cut features such as eyes, ears, and nostrils from construction paper (ears should have tabs). Attach with double-sided tape, as shown. Tape patterned paper around body. Hot-glue empty thread spools on for legs. Cut a slot at the top for coins, and a hole in back to insert a pipe-cleaner tail.
Plastic bottle rocket...as a piggy bank! This would be perfect for learning about the space coast. We would need to paint the bottles white with acrylic paint ahead of time, then let them decorate them with permanent markers and paper. This way we could teach them how every rocket ship that goes into space takes a lot of money to fly, and they tell us when their ship is full of coins. When they do, we'll have a space party.
