Re-using Costco Apple Containers
My boys LOVE apples, eating about 2-4 each day. Their favorite apples are the Costco Granny Smith apples that come in this molded container:
Going through 1-2 of these containers of apples each week led me to find uses for all these cool containers!
Here is what I've come up with - (note that many of these ideas could also help you reuse egg cartons too!)
Seed Starters - each seed has it's own little greenhouse!
A Mold for Chocolate Bowls - drizzle chocolate over the inside of the depression covering the surface. Place in the freezer for a bit then carefully pop out a fun chocolate bowl for ice cream or desserts.
Bird Feeder - Fill with birdseed then insert string at the corners. Hang from the nearest tree branch and enjoy!
Penny Toss Game - number each depression then toss several pennies. The player with the highest score wins. This is also a great way to practice math with your kids!
Toy Organizer - wrangle in all those small pieces like matchbox cars, Barbie accessories, Legos...
Fire Starter Mold - fill the cavity half way with sawdust, pour hot wax from candle scraps over and you have the perfect starter for your next campfire!
Giant Ice Cube Tray - this would be perfect for your next party!
Christmas Ornament Storage
Do you have any other cool ideas for reusing these containers?
