My mom sometimes tells me stories about how she would put things in the trash — and find it in my sister’s closet later (she was quite small when she did this — maybe preschool to elementary-aged!!). It seems my sister loved to use the various pieces of trash in her creative pursuits. I’m not sure if she still “rescues” trash in the same way she did as a kid — but now I do!! Since we are visiting my sister this weekend, I thought it would be fun to show off one idea for reusing trash!
An easy item to collect for projects is lids. I try to recycle anything I can, but I usually save lids in a container under my sink.
What can you do with lids?
–Utilize them in artwork–Make game pieces with them–Use them as templates for circles–Let your child practice tracing skills with them–Use them to hold glue or paint when doing projects
Do you have any ideas?!!
