Recycled Storage Jars

If you’re in child care, you’re probably like me – always looking for more storage baskets, containers, or bins. There’s never enough and it gets expensive. Containers often need to be replaced because they just don’t hold up to the wear and tear of children using them every day. I’m all about recycling and reusing when it’s a good idea and these recycled storage jars are a good idea!Recycled Storage Jars

I couldn’t wait to use up some peanut butter (the blue one is a mayo jar) to “make” these Recycled Storage Jars. I found the idea online somewhere-I can’t reveal *all* my sources! Actually, I can’t remember the source! Just drill a small hole in the lid and pull a ribbon through and knot it. The ribbon isn’t necessary but dresses it up a little. I liked the loop idea so I drilled two holes in the lid and it’s knotted on the inside.

I liked how simple, durable and inexpensive this is, plus the bright colored lids and cute ribbons you can use, fit right in with toys. My kids love to play with containers so this will be a hit. More materials fit on my shelves this way too. You could store cars, game pieces, craft supplies, crayons and more in these recycled storage jars. I’m going to save all my jars now! Ask friends and family to save them for you too. You’ll never look at a container the same way again… it’s almost an obsession. They are handy and hold up well!
