Send us your questions

Some of our visitors have sent emails with interesting questions, we decided to start having a space to answer them. In this space the blog "Restless Minds" will answer all questions you send us
Send us your question for the email: Restless Minds.

Science progress affects our daily life and "to know" means you are going to chose right, because it allows you to form your own opinion on scientific everyday issues. On the other hand, having an elegant and harmonious vision of the world where we live in leads to a feeling of intellectual satisfaction.
We believe this kind of scientific day to day knowledge should be encouraged from an early age, and that's why this project was born: science, culture, knowledge, crafts for your restless mind.

Plastic bottle moneybox (PET)

Transform a plastic bottle into a piggy bank.

What we need:
  • plastic PET bottle with cap,
  • 4 PET bottle caps or 4 cork wine stoppers,
  • acrylic paint,
  • cardboards,
  • double tape,
  • exact-O knife or scissors;
  • color markers;
  • other materials you want to reuse, as buttons for the eyes.
How to:
  1. Remove all the stickers and labels from the bottle;
  2. Wash it with running water;
  3. Let it dry completely;
  4. Close the bottle and place it in horizontal position;
  5. With the marker draw the place where you want to make the hole for the coins;
  6. Use the scissors, or the exact-O knife to open the hole, this requires adult supervision;
  7. Glue the 4 caps o the bottle, they must pretend they are the pig feet but most of all they must keep the bottle steady;
  8. Now its time to get creative ad to make your piggy bank one of the kind, paint it and decorate it at will, reusing materials is a good option.
  • Use hot glue for the feet;
  • Use double sided tape to glue the cardboard;
  • If you paint the bottle paint it first with white;
  • The normal acrylic paint comes off the plastic after a while.
Et Voil√°!
