    My youngest DH (6) is learning about recycling household items for other uses so this afternoon we put that lesson to work. We cleaned and dried out 2 large smoothie bottles and 2 small smoothie bottles, covered them with new socks and decorated, using each family member's favorite colors to make scarves and buttons.

    This is our family of snowmen!
