Let’s Get Creative and Make a Difference with Box Tops

Let's Get Creative and Make a Difference with Box Tops - At The Fire Hydrant #BTFELast week we went on our weekly grocery trip to Walmart searching for products that have Box Tops on the package to start collecting them for school.  Once we got home and cut out our Box Tops we realized that we had no where to put our collection.  I was getting ready to dump some paper towel tubes and realized they were perfect for collecting our little Box Top coupons. I also found a toilet paper tube that was about to be discarded into our recycling box.Let's Get Creative and Make a Difference with Box Tops - At The Fire Hydrant #BTFEI cut the paper towel tube down to the size of the toilet paper tube, placed a round piece of cardboard and taped the bottom of the tubes. Then we folded the top portion of the tubs in to form ears on the sides.  We then started painting the tubes, but then I realized they would make perfect little cardboard animals. So we decorated each tube like a cute animal.  To finish off our project we punched holes on the ears and tied a string through each hole to make a nifty handle.

One man’s (or woman’s) trash is another man’s (or woman’s) treasure.  Most of our evenings we spend creating cute crafts while enjoying a little snack.  My little one loves Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Flaky Layers Biscuits and Totino’s™ Pizza Rolls. Let's Get Creative and Make a Difference with Box Tops - At The Fire Hydrant #BTFE

La semana pasada fuimos en nuestro viaje semanal a Walmart en busca de productos que tienen Box Tops en el paquete para comenzar a recolectarlos para la escuela. Una vez que llegamos a casa y recortamos nuestros Box Tops nos dimos cuenta que no teníamos dónde poner nuestra colección. Me estaba preparando para tirar algunos tubos de toallas de papel y me di cuenta que eran perfectos para guardar nuestros pequeños Box Tops. También encontré un tubo de papel higiénico que estaba a punto de ser desechado en nuestra caja de reciclaje.

Corté el tubo de toalla de papel al tamaño del tubo de papel higiénico, coloqué una pieza redonda de cartón y pegue la parte inferior del tubo. Luego doblamos la parte superior de el tubo para formar unas orejas a los lados. Después, comenzamos a pintar los tubos, pero luego me di cuenta de que serian unos perfectos animalitos de cartón. Así que decoramos cada tubo como un animalito diferente. Para terminar nuestro proyecto le perforamos las orejas y atamos una cuerda a través de cada agujero para hacer un manilla ingeniosa.

Nos encanta ser creativas y pensar en diferentes maneras de utilizar las cosas que normalmente tiramos a la basura. La basura de un hombre (o mujer) es el tesoro de otro(a). La mayor parte de nuestras tardes no la pasamos creando artesanías lindas mientras disfrutamos de un pequeño aperitivo. Mi pequeña ama los Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Flaky Layers Biscuits y los Totino’s™ Pizza Rolls.
