Plastic Bottle Piggy Banks

Who says recycling can’t be fun? Transform an empty plastic bottle into an enjoyable way to save up your spare change!


  • Plastic bottle
  • Scissors
  • Construction paper in various colors
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Pom-poms


  1. Before you begin, make sure the bottle is empty and dry and labels are removed.
  2. With an adult's help, cut a coin-sized opening about mid-way down on one side of the bottle.
  3. Decorate your piggy bank with construction paper or googly eyes. Be creative—give it ears, eyes, or a tail!
  4. For feet, glue four pom-poms on the opposite side of the bottle as the coin opening.
  5. Start saving your coins and make your first piggy bank deposit!
