Lids, lids, lids

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?!!

We also save smaller lids, like water bottle lids and use them for BINGO markers. I have tons (been saving awhile) and even use them for our Girl Scout group when they play. ~Kendra

That's a good idea - sounds easier to hold and place on the board than scraps of paper like I usually use!
