Upcycled Snack Containers

Mica helped me make these snack containers today:

We just cut our milk containers in 1/2. Then cut each side into a semi circle. The sides that have Velcro I made a little bigger than the sides that do not. It was pretty easy to clean out.

I'm taking one to work tomorrow filled with grapes and celery.

Mica seemed pretty happy with the results. Isaak kept saying, "Mommy that's for milk! Not my snack!"

I like the cow on the back of the Smart Balance HeartRight Fat Free Milk. The other one is Blue Diamond Almond Breeze. Isaak will only drink cow's milk. Mica likes almond milk.

I only paid for the Velcro. I got the idea here.

I do plan on making the sandwich container on the site out of a gallon milk container. I tried to make it today and quickly realized that it doesn't work very well with the gallons that have the circle indents. I'll have to wait until I use up my purified water because they don't have circle indents.

I bet the boys liked eating their snacks out of the recycled containers.

I have been using our water bottles for little green houses
