Guest Post: Toddler Activity Bottles

Hi!  I'm Jen from over at Eating My Candy with Pork and Beans
I'm excited to be guest posting over here at Sassy Babies!

Do you have small children?
Do you have empty prescription containers?
Then, keep reading.  You're going to love this!

I have the hardest time throwing away prescription containers.
I have about 25 of them hidden away in a craft drawer.
I knew there had to be some good purpose for them after holding our medications.

Other than using them to store quarters for your purse/car
and using them to hold dice, thumb tacks, and paper clips for the office,
I couldn't find anything useful to use them for.

Then, inspiration hit!
at 4:00am, when most of my inspiration hits.

I made these
Little Activity Containers
for my toddler.

I used 2x4 inch printable labels to label each one.
I made one with cars, stickers, squishies, animals, crayons, army men, etc.

I spray painted the lids black and then found fun objects to put inside.
You can use most anything that comes out of a quarter machine, which I love.
Small and cheap!

I plan to put a couple containers in my purse, diaper bag, car, church bag, etc.
That way when I'm at the grocery store or the Pediatricians waiting room 
and my little man gets restless I have something to keep him entertained.

Okay, you can say it now.
I'm a genius.

Thanks so much for sharing with us, Jen.  And I'm gonna say it, Genius!
