My kids LOVE peanut butter and we go through a lot of it in this house! That leaves us with lots of empty plastic peanut butter jars. They aren’t really fond of the fresh stuff and I haven’t found a brand in glass that I like.
My 3 yr old has a few dollars that daddy gave her last week after their shopping trip and it’s just been sitting on her dresser. She plays with it but doesn’t really understand that you should keep it safe.
Directions to make: I simply cut a slit in the lid (be careful because plastic lids can crack), remove the label, and place a label or sticker on the front. We used our brand new Mabel’s Labels from our Back to School Combo kit (more on that later) to personalize the piggy bank with her name.
You could fill plastic jars like this with lots of goodies. Can you imagine how organized my sons Lego collection could be with several of these?
This post is part of the Upcycled Crafting Challenge (#freefromtrash) that I’m hosting this month. It’s part of a one month challenge to create from trash. This challenge will hopefully open your eyes to the number of items that we still end up trashing every day that could be used by ourselves or our kids to create fun and useful items.
Note: I’m still playing catch up on the rest of this month’s projects. More on the way soon.
