My family and I the past few weekends have been going to our friends house to swim. Last weekend we were sitting around and Jack found 2 bottle caps and put them together like they were a mouth. What kid doesn’t do that? Heck, I am almost 28 years old and I STILL do that! But seeing a 3 year old do that got my creative juices running and here is what we did.
What you need:
- Bottle caps (at least 2 per friend)
- Small piece of ribbon (we used red for a tongue)
- 1 medium sized pom-pom
- 2 google eyes ( more or less depending on what you want your friend to look like)
- Spray paint
- Hot glue
Spray paint your bottle caps what ever color you want. If they are already plain no biggie. I just didn’t want my son’s friend to be a corona bottle cap.
(I LOVE this color, I even used it to spray paint my hanging flower pots)
Get your pom-pom and your small google eyes ( or which ever size you have or want) and hot glue the eyes on the pom-pom.
Cut your small piece of ribbon on the end to make a V, just like a snake tongue. This step is optional if you don’t want your friend to have a tongue.
Once your bottle caps are dry, place your ribbon on the bottom of one cap so it is hanging out just a little bit.
Hot glue the other bottle cap into the one with the ribbon.
Now you can have friends in all sorts of colors and make them with different faces. Enjoy!
