WFMW: recycling baby bottles...


Whether you are getting rid of some baby bottles because you realize they are made with BPA, or your kiddo has graduated to the sippy cup (congratulations!), don't throw those bottles away just yet. There are a few ways that you can get some more use out of them, instead of sending them to the land-fill:

-add them to your sand toys for the beach or park
-use them for holding paint when you are feeling crafty with your kiddos
-one of my favorite ways to get more use out of them is by filling them with crayons and putting the lids back on (with the little stopper thingy or nipple in the lid). Stash these in your diaper bag, storage compartment in your car, etc. for emergency coloring sessions at the doctor's office, a restaurant, stuck in traffic, etc. My son especially loves letting the crayons fall through the lid (when you remove the stopper thingy) and then putting them back in. Well, he loves doing that almost as much as he loves rolling it off the table! :)
