We saw this recycled bottle love seat made by Unbound scholars in Guatemala. We liked it, and we wanted to make our own, so kindergarteners began saving juice bottles from home.
After we saved about 40 bottles, we were ready to build a kindergarten-sized love seat.
We taped 20 bottles together for the seat.
We rigged up armrests with more juice bottles.
There was some wild and crazy creating going on. It wasn’t easy helping 52 kindergarteners feel ownership in making our new furniture, but we did it. They are very proud of their work and look forward to getting a turn to sit on it.
First, we just had a white sheet for a cover.
Here’s a peek under the cover.
We only had the white sheet for one day. Then someone brought this colorful cover.
