If you have children, you may have an abundance of easter plastic left over from the holiday. Here are some ways to repurpose that pesky plastic:
Easter Baskets– Remove the handles from the baskets and use them to store toys in a child’s room. They are colorful and just the right size for putting on a shelf.
Plastic Easter Eggs– Use them for learning games such as counting, color recognition, color sorting and pattern making. When you are done you can donate them to your local pre-school teacher (teachers love getting recycled items to use in their classrooms).
You can also use plastic eggs to store little items such as tacs, screws, and batteries in a junk drawer. This way you don’t have to dig through the drawer to find a thumb tac when you need one.
Going on a trip? Use the plastic eggs to hold little items such a earrings, necklaces or cotton balls. They hold up better than plastic zip lock bags.
Easter Grass– If you are anything like us, this stuff makes you crazy. I usually don’t even like to let it come into my house. Instead of pitching it right away, use it for packing fragile items.
I know there are many more possibilities for repurposing all of that easter “stuff”. Leave us a comment and tell us what you repurposed.
