Upcycle Your Plastic Cake Containers!
My family and I celebrated three birthdays for the year so far. Lots of love and kisses and lots of cake and ice-cream (I'm feeling that now). Anyway, against the wishes of my significant other who doesn't miss an episode of Hoarders on TV, I KEPT THE CAKE CONTAINERS! (Actually I keep things home temporarily until I can deposit them at school, so he is anxiously awaiting the start of school.)
So I looked around cyberspace in search of some new and innovative ideas on upcyling plastic cake containers that I can probably tweak for use in the classroom, and I did find some. So today I am going to reveal what I took delight into making. The picture quality is not as I would have liked but I'm sure you understand. :)
To make this is very simple. You will need:
A piece of styrofoam or cardboard for the base
1 styrofoam cup
shells (or sand)
pictures of fish and other aquatic life
super strong glue
