Gerber Graduate Puffs turned Bowling Pins

I don't know about you, but my kids LOVED the Gerber Graduate Puffs. They were tasty and convenient. I bought tons of them over the course of my kids infant-hood. And for some reason, I just couldn't part with the containers themselves once they were empty. They just screamed "repurpose me" so I stored the clean, empty containers in one of my kitchen cabinets. One day, I finally discovered a use for them.

On a rainy day, my toddlers were driving me especially crazy. They were itching to go outside and between the cold winter weather and the rain, they hadn't gotten their energy out in quite some time. I needed a game for them to play that would entertain them and would be easy to clean up and put away when they were done. Behold, the Gerber Graduate Puff containers turned Bowling Pins.


All you need to do is peel the plastic label off the container (there's no glue, it comes right off). Turn the containers lid-down.


Then cut red construction paper into 1/2 inch strips and tape around the container about 1/3 of the way down. Done. Grab a ball, and start playing!

I hope you don't mind, but I pinned your pins. :) My description? "The Virtuous Wife "strikes" again!
