About This Class

Make a tin can man and have a fun conversation piece to hang in your kitchen or to set on a shelf. You can even hang these guys outside. They look great out in nature!

This easy recycling craft project is perfect to make with children. This project is great to do with a Scout troop or activity for a sleepover or slumber party.

Even big kids love making tin can men. Collect those bottle caps and keep your favorite food can and get cracking!
