Once the construction of your bottle school is complete, don’t forget to decorate it! It is important that the school looks good when it is finished: it helps the community feel proud of their accomplishment and cherish the building. The community will take pride in choosing what colors to paint their new bottle school. Painting the school is something everyone can get involved in, and it is fun!

Allowing the kids to contribute art to the school can give them an additional sense of ownership in what they have already created through hard work and with their own two hands. In particular, artwork featuring messages about the environment, recycling and sustainability can help reinforce the environmental education that the whole community has undergone as a result of building a bottle school together.
