Am I the only one that saves tin cans in a variety of sizes? I have a growing collection of tin cans, much to my husband’s despair. Until he steals my cans for his gardening projects and then I’m his hero less one can. But I digress.
They come in handy for many crafts (punched tin candle holder anyone?) and when you are a crafty household, you need all the craft supplies you can get your crafty hands on! What if you have a group of kidlets coming for Canada Day dinner and you want to whip up some utensil caddies? You need tin cans! Well, and some scrapbooking paper.
For Canada Day, I filled our caddies with a bottle of water, a straw, utensils (decorated with my Canada Day printable collection), and way down there is a pack of sidewalk chalk for drawing on the driveway or sidewalk.
You can fill your caddy with anything you need to make meal time as easy as possible. Having hot dogs? Throw in the some condiment packages! Have a wait at the buffet line? Throw in some small toys to keep them busy. The possibilities are endless! Fill them up and set them up at each kidlet place setting on the table. It will give you a little more time to get things ready, and keep them busy checking out the contents of their can, win-win.
You NEED some tin cans now, don’t you?
