Five playthings my children have made out of materials available at Peet's Coffee

A tribute to Merlin Mann's 5ives.

1. a blinking eye out of a dome-shaped iced drink top folded in half

2. the letters I, T, M, W, L, K, H, F, Z, X, and N out of wooden stir sticks

3. elephant ears out of paper cups

4. drinking straw paper worms and caterpillars

5. a pirate's telescope out of a clear plastic iced drink cup

My daughter loves the magic Wonder Woman bracelets (cup sleeves) from Starbucks.

LOL! I love this post. I mourn my old hanging out in coffee house days. With a two year old I now spend my time running after him between the tables trying not to spill my latte on myself! I hope he finds imagination in the stir sticks and empty cups soon!
