Works-for-Me Wednesday: Picnics
Introducing the Picnic Bucket™!
We have a back porch with a picnic table and in the summertime the kids like to eat their lunches and snacks on the porch. Sometimes they have a hard time carrying their drink, plate, utensils and napkin all at once down the back stairs to get outside.
I took one of those large popcorn tins (the ones they sell at Christmas, with pictures on the side and 3 kinds of popcorn inside). We ate all the popcorn, and the picture was cute, so I didn’t want to just throw it away—but it wasn’t doing me any good just sitting there EMPTY! Now it’s filled with:
• Paper plates
• Paper napkins
• Paper cups
• Plastic forks, knives and spoons (in a zipper bag, so they don’t get all over the place)
When we’re not using the Picnic Bucket™ it can be closed tightly and set on a shelf, out of the way until we need it again.
