Preschool with Milk Caps

The possibilities with what you can do using milk jug caps and bottle caps are endless! Here are just a few fun preschool ideas I found online and in other homeschooling and preschool blogs!


As you see on the left this game is set up so you can have your kiddos put the correct number cap on the correct flash card. You could also use a dice and have them roll the dice and match the numbers rolled with the bottle caps. Or you could go up to higher levels of math like what you see on Right and make math symbols to use (+,-,/,=, etc)


There are tons of things you can make using bottle caps or milk caps or both at the same time! To the Left they’ve made a caterpillar! You could also make other animals like a turtle, dogs, pigs, etc. To the right they used different caps (and probably some cups) to paint with! This is called circle art.


You can make letter caps like what you see on the Right and use them in all sorts of ways! On the Left you see you can make or buy cap words where kids just have to find and match the right letter caps to make words. You could also play spelling memory games, name games, color words, etc.

Clocks and Calendars

You can make all sorts of different calendars with milk caps or bottle caps. Some for the days, some for the numbers, some for the months. You could even make special holiday ones! Add some magnets to them and put them up on your fridge where you and your kids can practice and go over days and play first thing in the morning! As for clocks whether your make a real working one or a play one like you see on the Right you can have a lot of fun teaching time using bottle caps and other things around your house!

The games and learning you can do with bottle caps go on for miles! You can even set up musical notes like shown below! If you have other fun ideas please let me know!
