We finally organized our pens and pencils. They all used to be in a big basket. But now they are in these cute tins. Using a Tupperware can opener, the edges are not sharp. The good thing about them is that we can redecorate whenever we want. Maybe snowmen and päkapikks will appear next Xmas :)
After using these tins there were lots of lovely lids left. They were so cute I didn`t want to throw them into the recycling box. So I was looking at this pile… and thought I would make a memory game.
I cut out nice greenish circles to decorate one side and for the other side I cut out bigger circles from some junk mail. Annabel drew some cute picures which I photocopied and then we coloured them in.. and voila!
After finishing this memory game I saw milk bottle lids on the shelf. I had collected them “just in case” :D So we made another memory game as well. Annabel helped me to write the numbers.
