Speaking of Play Dough....
A few days ago I posted some great playdough recipes. Shortly after my post, I started to clean out my pantry and noticed that I had almost two dozen yellow playdough containers stacked up on my daughter's craft shelf.
Just as I was about to toss them, my son walked up and asked for Cheerios. AH HA!
Since I am way too lazy to stuff the playdough back into the containers (I use zip-lock bags), I started using them as snack holders. They are the perfect size for purses and backpacks and the color-coded lids are great for those of you who are more organized than I am.
Pretzels....green lids, etc.. (you get the point)
I actually pre-filled several containers with healthy "grab-and-go" snacks to prevent my toddler son from pouring a full box of cheerios into a dixie cup. UG.
