How to repurpose plastic cups
How to recycle plastic cups?
When you buy a drink in a plastic cup with a lid, recycle the cup! They make great paint containers for young children.
Some plastic cups already have a hole in the lid to let a straw through; that is very convenient because you just have to wash the cup and it’s ready to be filled with paint.
If the lid doesn’t have a hole, put a coin or another round object in the centre of the lid, draw a circle around it and cut out the hole with small pointed scissors. The hole will allow the brush to pass through. If the plastic cup falls, the paint spill will be minimal.
This makes it easy to create a painting centre with paint containers with lids!
