School & Craft Supply Organization Hint #6: Reuse food containers to store various craft or office items.
Depending on the ages of your children and where you plan to store the items, you could reuse various packing items from your food:
- Plastic peanut or almond butter jars
- Baby food containers (great for small items)
- Egg cartons
- Plastic tubs
- Cereal boxes
- Spice containers
- Cans (be sure to tape around the top edge to avoid any cuts)
- Glass jars (be sure these are put away from young children) – a fun project for the kids is to use a paintbrush and paint the jar with glue. Cover the glue with torn pieces of tissue paper.
