Creative Ways to Organize Crafts
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. What better way to reuse frappuccino bottles, spaghetti bottles, spice shakers, and large snack containers than to house craft supplies? If your family is at all crafty, then you probably run into the dilemma of how to store your craft supplies.
One problem is that most craft supplies come in non-resealable bags. Once you tear or cut open those bags then you now have craft supplies on the loose. I love creative ways to organize crafts that DO NOT COST MONEY! That’s where clean empty bottle come into play. Save your empty bottles that have good fitting lids. I would save more plastic than glass if you want your children to access the craft materials without your assistance.
My hubby was on a frappe kick for awhile and it was cheaper to buy the four pack then buy them individually. Of course I save one holder and the bottle to reuse them. I did throw out quite a few holders BEFORE I had the brilliant idea of re-purposing them!
We love our pom-poms and beads. We have beads in all sorts of kinds of materials like wood, plastic, and glass as well as all sorts of sizes!
What home with school-agers and preschool would be complete without FOAM stickers! We got all sorts of those, too! Since my Lil’ Red likes to use them I made sure the containers were plastic. Just so happens I save my spice containers and parmesan containers just for these sorts of things!
We cannot forget to mention all those wonderful seasonal sensory bin items! What do you do with them out-of-season? How about storing them in a jumbo UTZ pretzel or cheese puff container. This one was given to us by my parents!
Go dig into your recycle bin and save a container for your crafts or hobby items. Yes, get up and go right now! Wash it out. Allow to air dry and think of what craft material you will put inside!
