Re: Giants in TownHere is a version of Fran's recycled two liter soda bottle fish from the Carol Duvall HGTV show. The mouth of the fish, though quite effective this way, would have to be modified as I don't have a torch ... wonder if a heat gun would get the bottle opening soft enough to manipulate? Did you do anything to the bottle opening, Fran? And did the kids cut out fins as well as tails?

  ... I also completed a project with third grade, using recycled two liter soda bottles. The children cut tails, draw patterns with sharpies on the outside and then color in the inside with gel pens. The tails are then stapled, and they strung up using a string attached to a bead inside the bottle. Most people think they are stained glass.
  I'll take photos this week, and if you would like a copy, please email me off-line. PS. Start collecting two liter bottles... It takes a while!
