DIY Tabletop Lamp From Old Toys | Shelterness - To make the lamp you need to arrange the toys to form a nice looking base and bond them together using hot glue or any other glue you think would work. Don’t forget to put the cord through this base and fix a bulb on the top. Then you can cover the lamp base with several coats of paint and one coat of polyurethane lacquer.
This looks like a fun group project and after Earth Day kids could make sure all the plastic is recycled. Could also be fun to learn about the different kinds of plastic and what they can be recycled into. Maybe something they use everyday! Click to find information on plastic types and their identifying numbers, and even a story about some Albatross babies that you could share and help explain why we recycle and take responsibility for our own trash.
