Here’s a quick and easy way to create eco-friendly games for kids with reused lids. We put together eight fun activities with lids for kids to play with just for you!
If you’re like me you love the convenience fruits and veggies in the squeezable food pouches for babies and tots for when you’re on the go, but you feel bad about wasting the plastic with the lids.
I’ve found a solution for you! We collect our lids and then have free manipulatives to play and learn with at home or on the go.
