How many of you have recycle bins that are nearly overflowing by the end of the week?
I know ours is, despite all of the recyclables that I ‘rescue’ for various cool and creative learning fun. But before I toss anything into the recycle bin, I take off the lid (if there is one), throw it in the dishwasher, and then add it to our lid collection once it’s clean and dry.
And why do I keep lids? I keep them because there are about a million and one things to do with lids, things you don’t even realize until you start keeping them, that’s why.
This little Quick Trick will give you part of the skinny–3 ways you can use lids–and I plan to share other ways down the road, in another little video or blog post, on another sunny day.
Here’s the skinny. . .
- Keep. Those. LIDS: I’ve kept lids for years now–since the kids were tiny, so at this point we have tons.
And some lids have letters on one side and others have numbers and even others have foamies stuck to them. My kids have used lids for a trillion things, and I’m looking forward to sharing.
For now, check out 3 ways to use those lids!
Thanks so much for watching! Now tell us: How do YOU use lids?
