Plastic Man! Made From An Assortment Of Plastics !

Plastic Man! Made From An Assortment Of  Plastics !
On Friday after Jack got home from school we made a plastic man from milk caps and other plastics that I had been collecting from our long life milk and a supplement bottle and a plastic golf ball and his hat is made from a black plastic bottle cap and the brim is made from the black plastic insert from the woollies green bags and string to hold him together . Jack and I punched holes in each cap with a nail and a little hammer (my meat tenderizer) and I used a large sewing needle to push the string through the holes and some googly eyes that I purchased some years back from the $2 store. It's very easy and again a great fun activity to do with your children, so start saving those milk caps ! It's way better if we don't get more plastics but if you do its better to find other uses for it . When we went shopping on Saturday I said to Kev and Jack lets not get any thing with plastic , it was impossible , toilet rolls, long life milk, 2 green coconuts, natural sultanas,leg of lamb and they were all wrapped in plastic, easier said then done ,we use our green bags and our mesh bags for fruit & vegetables so we don't get any extra plastic. I Wonder how others avoid plastic ,please post and tell us all your great tips for reducing plastic.


  1. Its crazy how much plastic they use for everything isnt it?! especially when they have the reduced fruit and vege wrapped in plastic on those trays. doesnt make sense to me!

    Love the plastic man, very cute!
