This light house model is a fun rainy-day recycled craft project made from large water bottles. A customer brought in an example of a light house she’d made with a group of children. The instructions are available on the Family Fun website. Below is the list of materials they used.

  • 1.5-liter sport water bottle
  • Craft knife
  • Aluminum foil
  • Red acrylic paint
  • Black tape
  • Play-Doh or clay
  • Flashlight
  • White craft foam
  • Clear packing tape

You can find inexpensive flashlights at dollar stores. And The Scrap Box has in stock purple, yellow, and orange foam on tall rolls for only $1 per foot.
