Piece of the Week – Yogurt Cups

 Yogurt Cups

Since the start of solids more than a year ago, my munchkin has loved yogurt. She enjoys all types – Yo Baby, Yoplait Kids and Danon. After trashing the empty containers at the end of each breakfast for months, I finally  realized that these little “cups”, often with a picture of Dora or Diego, haven’t ended their “life”! I have started to reuse the cups. Actually, my munchkin has. She has a stack of the cups in her play area. She loves to puts stuff in them, from crayons to her Cheerios. She also uses as a seat for her Little People.

Do you reuse yogurt cups? How so? Please share!

    Cool idea, I wish that Aidan’s pudding came in a large container. The soy products are expensive and come in small amounts.

    i'm a bachelor so I have the luxury of reusing everything =D. I use these large yogurt cups instead of buying cups and glasses. Instead of tupperware . I pot plants in them after drilling 4 little holes in the base . I make my own beansprouts in them by putting muslin cloth on as a strainer. they are great for knik-knaks,coins,tool bits,nuts&bolts, cut holes in the lid for a toothbrush holder…….. . buy stuff in bulk ,use these for portion storage for meat,grain,sugar,… . So many uses for so many things.=D
