Try It Tuesday: Recycled Flower Art Project & GIVEAWAY

Well, if you remember that last week I shared with you my review of YoYummy Yogurt and mentioned that I had an art project to share with you in regards to re-purposing the caps. Well, here it is.


This was my son's idea. He kept insisting that the caps to the YoYummy Yogurt looked like flowers. We have seen caps on other squeezer products, but this is the only one that had indentations that made it look like it was petals.


The "grass" is just stuffing that came in a gift that I saved to use for art projects and to use in other gifts. It makes great grass! And then we just used some green popsicle sticks that I bought as a pack of colored sticks form the dollar store (they dollar store is a great place to buy art supplies for kids!) and some construction paper.


I let each of the kids work on their own creations. I also got out the tub of art scraps if they wanted to embellish more, which my daughter did and she added more flowers using beads, buttons, gems and pom poms and also added a butterfly made from string, yarn and construction paper.





GIVEAWAY

I have also included the giveaway I mentioned in that YoYummy post. They gave me almost $15 in coupons towards YoYummy Yogurt, but since it is not at a store near me I am unable to use them and want a reader who is able to use them to have them. They are for (10) $1 off 4-packs and (10) 50-cents of single yogurt.

I saw an idea on pinterest for using those caps to make wheels for shrinky dinks vehicles. :) I'm saving some in a kitchen drawer.
