Recycled CD – DVD Making A Glitter Fish

Hi everybody.I hope that everybody is having a good week. Today we are going to incorporate a recycled material in our craft – an old CD. They say the remain in a land-fill for a million years. We think that in very young age it is good to teach our children the importance  of taking care of the environment. Incorporating recycled material in our activities is a good way to encourage them to creatively find ways of re-utilising old objects around the house or in the environment.

I found this lovely idea here:  EcoSuperior Environmental Programs – Recycled cd fish craft. ,we all have old CD or DVD  at home and I think is a good idea to recycle them making crafts.

For this craft you will need: some old CD  or DVD, Mod podge, glitter ( you can use any sparkling material to decorate them or you can use sharpie to draw the scales, some colored paper to make the fins, mouth and tale, scissors,scotch tape and wiggle eyes.

Apply some mod podge glue all around in the back of the CD and sprinkle some glitter on the glue.Then cut the fins,mouth and tale from the colored paper and attach with scotch tape.Now you can attach the wiggle eyes with glue.

When they dry you can even use them to decorate the children’s bedroom wall.
