Get Creative

  • Get a little creative and personalize your school supplies with this back-to-school family craft . This is a great way to get you ready for your first day back to school. Start by picking your gear, purchase fabric paint and start embellishing it with your own innovative ideas.
  • Consider decorating your lunch box with all your favorite action figure cartoons. Tired of your plastic baggies? Get creative by reusing snack and sandwich containers from juice cartons and milk jugs. Kids you can get creative by decorating your eco-friendly containers with stickers and markers with your own personalized touch.

Try this idea for your own recycled sandwich box:

  1. Mark a clean 1-gallon milk jug.
  2. Cut along markings. Pierce a row of dots with a thumbtack to make the creased lines.
  3. Fold the flaps along creased lines, then open and fold flaps in opposite direction, making it easier for kids to open and close. Add an adhesive-backed Velcro dot closure.

Very cute! I’m very eco-conscious so I’ll put this idea to good use.

Ever since I made my little girl her recycled sandwich box, she eats every last bite of her sandwich. Last year she would always come home with half her sandwich uneaten and give me some lame excuse. No more excuses!
