Reuse rocks! My cousin is a teacher and she collects the metal lids from frozen juice containers from everyone she knows. She writes numbers or words on one side and puts a magnet on the other side so that she can stick them to the chalkboard and use them as a teaching aid. I think that’s brilliant!
What do you reuse that otherwise would have gone in the garbage?

You are sending me back… I went to an event at my church when I was a little kid… it was like a mini jerusalem. There were booths filling a high school gym, and all the kids were given these juice lids – and they were “sheckles”. You could use the sheckles to buy bread and cheese, or play games, or make souvenirs. As a kid, I thought that was the COOLEST thing to have this fake money and use it like a grown up.
I love the idea of using them as fake coins! I once saw a website that you could print out an image of a coin that is the right size to be glued to a frozen juice lid – how much fun would that be!
Here is a link to a site that has instructions to make the coins with the lids: http://www.examiner.com/x-1146-Seattle-Eastside-Family-Examiners~y2009m8d10-Happy-100th-birthday-to-the-penny–Make-your-own-toy-pennies-with-frozen-juice-can-lids
