It’s National Read a Book Day!
My family loves to read. Well, OK; I love to read, which is what inspired me to help my kids make bookmarks out of repurposed Hiland Dairy Milk jugs.
Why should celebrating our country’s stars and stripes be limited to one day during the month of July? You can repurpose Hiland Dairy Organic Milk cartons to create a patriotic centerpiece that you and your guests will enjoy all month long.
I had some amazing teachers growing up, and now my kiddos do, too. Say thanks by giving them one of these homemade crayon wax candles to show your appreciation. These candles are creative, fun and made with … wait for it … ice! You read that right, pour melted wax over crushed ice in empty Hiland Dairy cartons and the results are amazing.
What do you get when you mix Hiland Dairy Milk with vinegar? A mess? No! You get a “plastic”-making science experiment your kids will love (of course, true plastics are made from polymers, not milk and vinegar). So, let the fun begin.
They teach you the importance of ‘lips and hips,” inspire you to create masterpieces with just a number two pencil and a box of crayons – and understand that while you love being in their classroom, recess is still your favorite part of the school day. That’s why we celebrate Elementary School Teacher Day on the third Monday of January!
Why spend a fortune on Holiday decorations when you already have what you need to brighten up your home? Check out this crafty way to create Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus and their reindeer from repurposed milk jugs. This idea is super easy and fun for the kids!
