10 New Uses Tuesday {Drink Carriers}

Welcome friends!! 
Ready to figure out some new uses for something you probably tossed in the recycle bin?
We get one of these drink caddies every week when my in laws come over and bring us Starbucks, and you know I couldn’t just toss something like that, right?
Too much potential!
So let’s get to it!
1. Starter pots! They already have built in drainage holes!
2. Mobile: You can string whatever beads you have and hang from a drink caddy upside down and you have a quick and easy mobile!
3. Stationary Holder: You can either add cups into the kind that I have pictured or grab the ones that hold two drinks and just fill them up with pens and markers galore!

4. Printmaking: Cut the four cups apart and the kids can just dip them in paint and go to town on paper with their favorite colors. 
5. Spray Paint Organization: It may look funny, but with them in these, you could stack them in a cupboard if needed, which you couldn’t do otherwise. 
6. Cupcake Holder: Great if you are bringing a few for a teacher or friends birthday and you don’t want them to move around in the box. You cold even spray paint the holder, but the cupcakes in and then wrap in fancy cellophane and tie with a ribbon, clever and cute!
7. Paint Cup Caddy: Let your little artist paint like a pro by putting their paint cups in the cup holder and they are able to hold them all at once at the easel. Also it helps prevent spilling!
8. Blackout Kit: Put a flashlight, matches, candles, batteries and what ever you may need all together in one of the 2 compartment vertical drink organizers so you have everything all together if you ever have a blackout.
9. Matching Game: Check out my fast and easy tutorial for this fun game for toddlers HERE
10. Sorting Tray: Kids can sort animals, rocks, leaves or whatever else they find into these trays easily, plus they would be working on concept development at the same time.
