There’s something special about gifts made by kids, especially when those gifts are functional. Containers make perfect presents because they can hold so many different things - from art supplies and kitchen utensils, to bike tools and cut flowers.
Here are five ways your kids can turn everyday items into useful keepsakes for teachers, family and friends.
Of course, these ideas are only the beginning. You can use almost any container (water bottle, cereal box, cotton swab box, cat food can, etc.) and almost any art medium (paint, paper, beads, etc.) to make fabulous gifts for friends and family. So go ahead and get creative!
