Bottle Top Color Wheel
Activity DesignerNicole Duggan
If your child loves to paint or is learning his colors, then this Bottle Top Color Wheel is a fun (albeit bit messy) way to introduce your youngster to a kaleidoscope of colors!
How We Did It
To get ready to make the Bottle Top Color Wheel, collect bottle tops and find a thick piece of cardboard (for example, the top of a pizza box.)
Trace a circle and divide it into 6 equal sections. If you don't have bottle tops you could also make your color wheel with construction paper (rip and glue onto the wheel), paint chips, images from magazines, or colored pasta.
Paint the bottle tops. We painted the top surface, but that made it harder to glue them on later. It might be a good idea to paint the inside of each top and that way there is more surface to glue onto the cardboard. I gave each child a color to be in charge of ,which helped us keep track of how many of each color we were making.
