  • Step 1

    Put a little paint inside the bottle, close it and shake it so the paint completely covers the inside. Pour out the remaining paint. Let it dry thoroughly. Be sure the paint is suitable for children.

  • Step 2

    Now mark the position of two holes on the bottle at a distance of 4 cm apart (you can orient yourself using the form of the bottle). Later you will attach the wheels here. Repeat on the top side. Now make a hole with a needle or scissors at the points marked.

  • Step 3

    Trim the wooden sticks at about 11 cm and insert them as an axle through the holes. They should rotate smoothly.

  • Step 4

    Make a hole in each of the five caps. Then place on the sticks to become the four wheels.

  • Step 5

    Pass a cord through the fifth cap and fix with a knot. Screw the cap onto the plastic bottle.

    If you want, you can now decorate the truck with pens and paint and draw windows and door handles. Your children will certainly help you.

    For the lights, there are several possibilities: either paint them on paper or use, for example, the tops of push pins. To ensure that the truck is safe for children, first of all remove the points with pliers and glue the heads of the pins on the roof.

    You need two 1.5 litre plastic bottles, a 30 cm zipper, a little tempera paint, a brush and liquid glue.
     

  • Step 2

    What size should your box be? Once the size is decided, separate the bottoms from the rest of the two bottles. The lines on our SAGUARO bottles will help find the correct place to cut.

  • Step 3

    Open the zipper and apply the liquid glue on the upper side. Attach it on the inside of the bottle. While it dries, you can use staples to hold everything in place.

  • Step 4

    Glue the zipper well on the other side. Once the glue is dry, you can paint the box.
