Things That Make You Say...Hmmmmmmmm

So, after cleaning and playing with the things in the storage closet we found several empty Playdough containers. Because we are into recycling and I am a "Re-Purpose" junkie, I could not toss them.

However, it begs the questions “What does one do with the empty playdough containers?”

I know what you mean...we can hardly throw anything away either! hmmm...paint cups, use for sorting, for collecting small items on a nature hike? whatever you do, have fun!

I use them again as playdough containers by refilling them with homemade playdough or paint cups.

I have a difficult time throwing things away too. I have been collecting yogurt containers and can't seem to stop even though I have plenty to fill a refrigerator section at the grocery store. Also, I find that cereal boxes are great for art projects (creating w/and painting on).

I agree. Make a homemade play doh, which is safer for your children. My children and I make ours from scratch using edible ingredients although I don’t encourage them to eat it. The recipe we use is extremely quick and easy. Here is the recipe http://greenandnaturalmommy.blogspot.com/2008/06/indoor-summer-fun.html and you can also see the fun they had making it.
