My daughter's preschool is banding together to try and win a $30,000 playground makeover from Dannon in their Rally for Recess promotion. We have all been drinking a lot of these Danimals smoothies and another mom at our school made this absolutely adorable Halloween Lights using the empty bottles! I just love this. Check out her blog for more of her adorable DIY creations.
Here's how she did it. She used black vinyl for the eyes and mouth but a sharpie would work too. She even let her kids help by drawing on some of the faces. Just grab yourself a pair of white string lights, and any ribbon you have laying around the house. Punch a hole in the sides and then cut down the side to the hole. The hole allows for a place for the lights to rest.
Kelly said snowmen are in the works for Christmas. I also plan on making a tacky Christmas wreath for my daughter's classroom using some of the empty red and green bottles. Any other ideas for a gazillion empty yogurt bottles?
And speaking of the danimals smoothies, these really are great snacks. My kids and myself love them and at 70 calories, they have less sugar than regular yogurt and no high fructose corn syrup. If your family drinks these or if you are a fan of the blog and willing to pick some up during your next trip to the grocery store, IF YOU WOULD PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE email me the special RALLY FOR RECESS code printed on the inside of the cardboard sleeve (not the UPC code but the code stamped on the inside of the packaging, I would so appreciate it. You can send those to firstname.lastname@example.org. Here's what you're looking for at the grocery store.
Thanks so much!!!
