Plastic Bottle Boats 2018

JULY 16 - 20, 2018

Kids built floating sculptures of recycled plastic bottles, duct tape, and chicken wire. This project occurred over the span of five days in July and involved 14 kids, ages 7-14. On the final day of the program we transported the boats to a local lake for a paddle adventure. Six boats were made in total out of over 2,000 plastic bottles collected from our community.
