I was looking for a way to recycle old plastic bottles, so I came up with a pokeball container. Although the idea isn't exactly new, I've never seen one that turned it into a pokeball, so here it is.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
2 plastic bottles
red and white nail polish or acrylic paint
glue (I forgot to include in the photo)
Step 2: Cutting the Base
Cut the base to serve as the pokeball top and bottom.
Step 3: Coloring
Color one half red and the other half white. You can choose to use either nail polish or acrylic paint.
Step 4: Lining
With your marker trace a line at the rim of the red half of your pokeball.
Step 5: Center
Create the center design for your pokeball. Place a white dot and encircle it with black marker. After it dries cut around the design and glue to the red half of your pokeball.
Step 6: Place Together
Join the two halves together.
That's it! It can be placed on top a shelf or on the kids area and can be filled with supplies and other small objects. (or a pokemon)
