THERE ARE SO MANY USES FOR ALTOIDS TINS! I love them, in case you couldn’t already tell. I love the candies inside, I love that the tins can be reused after, I love that those “curiously strong” little fellas leave such a sweet lingering scent on their handy dandy container. So for TIP TUESDAY this week, let’s discuss a couple of ways to Upcycled Altoids Tins – these fun boxes of love and greatness.
# 1 LUNCH MONEY CONTAINER: This could be used by elementary kids and high schools kids alike. Even as an adult this last week for camping, I stored my credit cards and DL in one, worked like a charm.
# 2 GLAMOUR KIT– Thanks to my nieces Megan and Bri for all of the trinkets. This could be used by any age…namely high school and junior high girls. The Glamour Kit can include hair accessories, earrings, clips, hair bands, bracelets and whatever else needed to have it all at your fingertips. The Glamour Kit could also be a stowaway in a gym locker.
#3 LOVE NOTES/POST-IT HOLDER: So really your high school student might get harassed if they saw a tin of LOVE NOTES from their mother….so the older kids could use this one to store their post-it notes. This is a fun little place to leave notes for your child or for them to leave a nice note for someone else at school.
#4 ODDS & ENDS…You can store just about anything small and handy in this handy tin: Chapstick, house key, little treats, change, whatever. The lid even clamps down and doesn’t open on accident, BRILLIANT.
So whether you use them for money, treats, glamour or all three; Altoids tins are super handy for kids at school!
