I'm sure I'm not the only parent who bought those Baby Cubes containers for storing homemade baby food.
[Pictured here: OXO Tot Baby Blocks containers, because I'm an OXO fan and they get better reviews at Amazon. — Ed.]
Well, that baby has progressed beyond purees and I was about to toss the containers in the "donate" pile, when I realized they would be perfect for other purposes.
Nature collecting kit: My 5 year-old daughter loves to collect small stones, sea glass, acorns, etc. and these are perfect for collecting and sorting her "specimens."
Lunchbox dip or treat holder: With Kindergarten underway I'm still wrapping my head around making and sending lunches and snacks. The baby food containers are the perfect size for a bit of dip for cut veggies, or for a small treat. The bonus is the lids are attached so they won't get separated during a busy lunch at school.
I can't imagine ever getting rid of those cute containers. They're so repurpose-able!
- Holder for a bead, button, or jewlery collection
- Sorter for tiny Legos, doll accessories, art supplies or barrettes
- Containers for advance dinner prep (holding bits of chopped onion, garlic, spices, etc.)
- Paint palette
What else could you do with these little baby food containers?
