Upcycle Items You Would Normally Recycle Or Throw Away! #ChickfilAMomsDIY #Upcycle #Recycle

All to often we throw away cans, jars, plastic containers, cereal boxes, cardboard and more. But do we ever thing to Upcycle them and reuse them for a new, different purpose? I am tired of throwing away a 13 gallon trash bag of trash every day or two with items inside that could be reused. We do recycle cans, bottle, cardboard and more in our home. We have separate containers for them all and our local dump has separate containers for all of them too!

I was asked to upcycle a Chick-fil-A Salad container. I had no idea what to do. I started watching other people's ideas and saw that some people created bird feeders with them, bird baths, napkin holders, crayon holders, fairy gardens, eye-spy games, zen garden, container to put a teacher appreciation gift and more!

I thought and thought about what I wanted to do and came up with the same ideas as those above. I wanted to be able to keep and reuse this container and recycle other materials to create something. I am normally not a DIY-er or a Crafty person. It takes me a long time to come up with something. What I came up with took me 18 days, which is good for me. I even involved my two girls into helping me think of something, and they had no idea.

We created a Tic Tac Toe Travel Game! 

We took cardboard that came with a package that we were going to recycle and cut it to fit the bottom of the Chick-fil-A Salad container and cut and measured another piece to fit the top of the container to make our sign. I used double-sided tape to attach the cardboard to the bottom of the container and to the lid also. We then went around the outside of our home looking for little rocks to put X's and O's on to play Tic Tac Toe with. We found some great rocks underneath our back deck! Then I used a sharpie to put X's and O's on both sides of the rocks so that they can be used by anyone for which ever one people decide to be while playing the game.

My kids and I can play this home, take it on a road trip, to a restaurant or anywhere! It also saves tons of paper and trees! Check out my Pinterest Upcycle Board for even more Upcycle ideas!

What kind of thing(s) might you create using a salad container from Chick-fil-A? I am thinking of trying a small fruit or medium sized fruit container and seeing what we can come up with next!

Teen Titans Go!: Eat. Dance. Punch! Season 3 Part 1 DVD #Review & #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 5/30 #TeenTitansGo #CartoonNetwork

Disclosure: I received a copy of "Teen Titans Go!: Eat. Dance. Punch! Season 3 Part 1" on DVD in exchange for my post from Warner Bros. No other compensation was exchanged or received.

ON DVD May 31, 2016

Includes Over Four Hours of Cartoon Network’s #1 Series

After three successful seasons, the popularity of Teen Titans Go! is undeniable and has lead Cartoon Network to aptly brand the network’s Thursday cartoon block as “New Titans Thursday.” On May 31, 2016, everyone will enjoy 26 all-new adventures with DC Comics’ Teen Titans as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) and DC Entertainment release Teen Titans Go!: Eat. Dance. Punch! Season 3 Part 1 on a 2-disc DVD collection $19.97 SRP.

Robin, Cyborg, Raven, Starfire and Beast Boy are back for the latest installment in the Teen Titans Go! series with another season of crime fighting and gut-busting adventures. Hilarity ensues as everyone’s favorite heroes must band together to fight crime and deal with everyday adolescent issues. Whether their capes are on or off, the gang is always up to something!

“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is delighted to release of Teen Titans Go!: Eat. Dance. Punch! Season 3 Part 1 on DVD,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE Vice President, Family, Animation & Partner Brands Marketing. “Fans can get excited about yet another installment of the ever-popular Teen Titans Go! animated series.”

My Review:
We love Teen Titans Go! The first episode is where the Teen Titans turn into Kitty Cats. It's one of my favorites! The second cartoon is about them losing their arm muscles, so they end up with strong leg muscles and they use their legs for everything. So hilarious! I find the Teen Titan animated shows super comical a majority of the time. Once in a while they have a great message, but most of the time it's just great to zone out, stop thinking about the mess our world is in, and take a break from all of it and enjoy some comedy for a while. The "Teen Titans Go!: Eat. Dance. Punch! Season 3 Part 1" Two DVD set does just that! It's perfect for zoning out anytime day or night, after school, on a raining or cold day or on a day when it's too hot to go outside.
