Turn newfangled gum containers into Cheerio dispensers
Isn't Tracy smart?
We use our leftover gum containers to hold Cheerios for on-the-go snacking. It's nice because my toddlers have two different ways to get the Cheerios: the small opening for just 1 or 2 or the large top opening for handfuls :) It doesn't help keep the Cheerios fresher any longer, but it's neater than using bags or plastic containers as it only dispenses a couple Cheerios at a time (that should tell you something about how many times my toddler has spilled an entire bagful at church!).
On a side note, we've also used gum containers for dispensing sugar. Just drilled some holes in the small opening. I'm thinking this could be adapted for Christmas cookie decorating. Hmmm...
