~ * ~ Reuse those Laundry Bottle Caps ~ * ~

Curious J has wooden blocks that were made in China , he loves them but I decided I needed to get rid of them , because of the lead paint scare. I have been saving the caps from my laundry detergent bottles for awhile , wasn't sure what I was going to use them for but knew I would think of something.

One day I was doing the laundry and added a cap to the collection , the idea came to me , they would make great building blocks.When Curious J came to spend the night with me , we tried them out. They were a hit ..... he loves them. These are safe to have around the grandbabies too , no small pieces.

I won't have anymore to save , since I will be making my laundry detergent but my daughters and my mom are saving them for me. So , save those caps for building blocks.

Reduce ~ Reuse ~ Recycle

What a great idea for the building blocks. Its so nice when we can recycle something to a useful new purpose. I'm with you on the plastic bags too. I love that so many places are offering reusable bags instead. Especially for those of us who dont sew so well). If we all make some changes imagine what a difference it'll make.
