1. Plastic Bottle Bowling
Grab all those plastic bottles that have been collected for recycling, add some paint (shake up the paint until it covers the bottle), and use them as your very own make-shift plastic bottle bowling pins! The kids will have a blast shaking the bottles to spread the paint around it. Easy and eco-friendly.

Make letter pieces out of cardboard and markers, paint, or masking tape and let the fun commence.
