more bottle cap animals!

April 5, 2010

Juliet had so much fun with our bottle cap bunnies, that I decided to put together some more animals or her to create. We have so many favorite animal books, I thought I would give you some links to of past reviews of our favorites books. Check out The Best Nest by P.D. Eastman or our favorite bird books

Kitty cats? Juliet named this one Penny (after our own kitty), but we have lots of favorite cat books!

Looking for some good dog books

Juliet immediately named this one "Beady Bear" after a new favorite Beady Bear by Don Freeman.

You probably know Corduroy, but have you met Beady yet? 

And lastly, turtle. I have no books for this! Just thought it was cute. Do you have any good turtle books to recommend? 

I recently started a facebook fan page for this blog and am hoping that you all will upload pictures of your crafts to the page! I'd love to see how your bottle cap animals turn out or any other crafts that you've made from my site. 

I'd love to use some of your photos in upcoming posts in a "you tried it!" feature.

How fun! I love how they turned out. Anna loved The Best Nest - this is such a fun book.

I have recently starting following your blog (all the way from New Zealand) - very inspiring - thanks! These animals are so cute. I am going to try them with my son. As for great dog stories ... we love Hairy Maclary by Lynley Dodd - a New Zealand author!

Definitely a really fun reuse craft! The possibilities are endless! Thanks for sharing!

I LOVE these!!!! I've been collecting bottle caps for ages and outside of sorting them, I had no clue what else they'd be good for. Thank you for sharing such a fun idea!

Oh my gosh, these are so adorable! I think these would make great fridge magnets, don't you? And thanks for the bird book list... we are bird crazy here lately. :)

okay, those are SO, SO cute!
I found your blog through the UBP & I love it & am now following. I also have a 3 year old little girl who LOVES books (as do I) I am a math teacher, but I have a deep love of reading.

Hi Vanessa,

How about the Franklin books by Paulette Bourgeois and Brenda Clark to go along with your really cute turtle creation? Franklin is a turtle and the stories are usually very sweet.
