Little Plastic Family – Sophie Daly

Welcome everyone to this week’s children’s workshop! We will be looking at making our own little version of our families out of plastic bottles. Plastic is a really difficult thing to recycle, but it is also something that is super hard to avoid using. Let’s have a look at upcycling them instead! Each member of your family probably has their own personal empty bottles lying around, it could be shaving foam, makeup, your baby brother’s ear medicine, anything at all. They will be sure to love their own little Mini-Mes! We will also have a little chat about how recycling plastic works. Have fun!
