Students that are finished with projects can prepare bottles by removing the labels.
At this point the bottles are ready for students to paint. They may paint the inside or outside of the bottle with acrylic paint. They need to put their name on the inside of both pieces. We let them dry and continue them when they return the following week.
The next step is to wrap a pipe cleaner around your finger and use a hot glue gun to glue to one end to the mouth of the bottle. (You can use a stick to push down on the pipe cleaner.) The other end needs to be curled up tight and glued to inside of what used to be the bottom of the bottle, but is now the head. You may need to manipulate the pipe cleaner to get it to balance.
Students can detail out their bobbleheads with whatever you have available!
Just looking at the bobbleheads that were made a few years ago has me all excited to start them this week! Now, I need to put together that power point.........
Thanks for reading!
