A really GREEN way to use Clothespins
This picture cracks me up. Just had to add it. Anywho, I was reading online about some ways to help encourage children to be more aware of the amounts of resources they use. I know that as parents we try to make little changes around our house to become more energy and resource efficient. Being Green is something that I want to teach my children but I had no idea where to start. So, I started doing some "googling" (researching) and I came across this really great idea to use wooden or plastic clothespins on the drinking glasses around your house. This is from a blog called Tidy Brown Wren written back in 2009. This is a really cute blog with lots of helpful organizational ideas.
Let each child decorate a clothespin and have them clip it to their cup and leave it on all day. We go through so many cups at my house it is ridiculous. I just thought this was a cute little idea to help children become aware and pro-active and to help do their part. Probably not a good idea for coffee cups... But for plastic or glass cups its GENIUS!
