So many you already do this. I did not until recently, but when I came up with it I felt like a genius. Well, a semi-genius anyway.
Do you have a little artist on your hands? I do. Two, in fact and they LOVE painting. They want to paint all the time.
Yours too? Well, next time you have these kicking around, keep ’em.
I use old styrofoam trays (from fruit and veggies only – the meat ones gross me out) or coffee lids to put and mix the paint on. Then they can bring out their inner Picasso while reducing, reusing and recycling. Also makes clean up a breeze.
Do you have any new uses for old things that you think are genius (or semi-genius)?
