A Robot Made from Recycled Materials

Megan had to do a project for school. 

She was instructed to make something out of recycled materials.  This is what she created.  A robot.  Luckily, I had done a bit of spring cleaning two days before and all the stuff I threw out was still in our dustbins. 

So, we went shopping in the dustbins for materials to use to create a uber cool robot.  

Here's the results!


A plastic loofa for his hair, curlers for his ears, the top of a pen as an earring, Energade bottle tops for eyes, an old hose for a nose, lego for a mouth, a calculator on his tummy, buttons made out of old blister pill packets, more bottle tops and pom-pomss.  His feet are made out of mini up-side-down crates and we covered his entire body and head with tin foil.



We even glued on some old fake eyelashes onto the Energade bottle tops to make him look real

Wow ... absolutely fabulous! Looking at the pics makes me wanna be a kid again. Very creative use of junk and the robot is a cross between Sponge Bob and that robot from "Lost in Space."
