I’m looking for inspiration. The attached photo is a cardboard container measuring 20x7cm. We have heaps of them donated by the covid vaccination clinic in our community health area. Perfectly clean. What would you make from them?

Hi Sally
You could ask the residents what they would like to do with it
I am thinking that you could make it some kind of a pencil holder
Could decorate them and put some pencils in
You could use them as a kind of knickknack holder
Could have all sorts I have arts and craft supplies such as magic markers glitter glue etc.
Then get a big piece of posterboard and paste the finished work of each resident on the board
Could have a theme

Hi Sally.

I think you could add a bit of potting mix and plant some seeds in them.
Maybe make it a bit of a competition between residents.

Good luck.

Possibly a mini herb or flower garden.

Hi Sally, you could glue them top to top, and with the help of papier-mache residents could turn them into animals like whales, crocodiles, fishes, lizards. It is a great way to recycle the
donated containers and newspapers.
