Do you have any old coffee cans or empty jars lying around the house? Do also you have a million little small toys, crayons, pens, stickers, or magnetic letters just waiting to be organized? Here is a quick project that helps tidy up the house and reuse those fabulous containers.
WHAT YOU MAY NEED:
- Coffee Can or Other Empty Containers
- Glue – Tape
- Construction Paper – Assorted Colors
- Pens – Paint – Crayons

Most of my containers at home are the same size, but they were perfect for the area I chose to store everything giving my daughter easy access to them.

See if you can spot which embroideries have made the final cut! (See “Baby Zoo” on our website)”
