Turn an old baby wipe box into a toddler "tissue box" toy

Does your kid like to pull all the tissues out of the box?

Homa's did, so she turned an old baby wipe box and some fabric into a reusable “tissue box” toy.

(Do you know Homa Woodrum? She's been a generous sharer of links and tidbits for years. She's Oh Mah Deehness on the Web and @WoodrumLaw on Twitter. Go say hi!)

Other uses for baby wipe boxes: kitchen cabinet organizer, small toy storage, art supply box, etc., etc., etc. The list goes on forever.

Great idea for a toy, especially if you can keep it separate from the wipes you actually need them to leave alone. : ) I use wipes containers for beads (kids can reach in the top and get just a few beads at a time, army guys, little bubble containers that we get as party favors, mighty beans (my older kids love their little toys)! I always keep a few on hand for whenever we get some new little thing.

Nice idea! Instead of throwing away these old baby products, we can reuse them to ease our daily work. I think we can use this idea for other unnecessary things. Well done!
