Fun Bottle Cap Activity
It’s a colorful diy game set using green bottle caps and red craft foam pieces – red apples and green leaves.
We really enjoyed this engaging game, so I thought it is a good idea to spread word about it. It’s engaging, easy to play AND takes only little time to arrange. Great for preschool play! But first, I need to give credit for the idea that has given us such a great time playing: Kate at A Little Pinch of Perfect posted about a very similar game her kids played. As I see now, both the game and the setting have turned out to be a little different from hers, but the idea is definitely from her place. Thanks, Kate!
Now, off we go. First, let me list the required materials, then the setting and then the HOW-TO directions for playing this apple search game. Please also note that the post includes affiliate links for your convenience, if you’d need to stock on the materials you need for this activity (but most probably, you already have everything you need).
- a piece of plain white paper
to form a background
- colored crafting paper
in brown to make the tree trunk
- used green plastic bottle caps
- a piece of red craft foam
for tiny apples (regular red paper will do just as well)
PREPARE THE SETTING:
- Cut out a tree trunk from brown crafting paper
- (Optional:) cut a green stripe of crafting paper to the bottom.
- Glue to a piece of paper.
Use the red craft foam to cut out small circles that will act as apples. (You might get creative here 🙂
Bear in mind that only half of the bottle caps will house one ‘apple’, meaning that if you’ve got 10 caps, you’ll only need to cut out 5 craft foam apples.
