Plastic Coffee Cans
While He Was Napping: In Case Of Emergency Kit. This one is for 'humans'...but I think it's a necessity for our furry friends as well! So easy to put together...ask your vet for 'must have' med supplies, then make 2 up in case you and the family are stranded on a slippery road, things happen! I use 2 large empty plastic Folgers coffee cans 1. for emergency stuff 1. for extra food etc
Recycled coffee container bird feeder. There are lots of different things which can be made into bird feeders - smaller plastic bottles (wine bottle size) with 2 wooden spoons for perches, tin cans (on their sides), boxes made out of popsickle sticks. After the kids have made the bird-feeders you can hang them and watch the birds - how great is that?
