Recycle, Reduce, Reuse....

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

This weekend I decided to clean the crafting area. I came across many pieces of scrap construction paper, pipe cleaners of odd lengths, etc. But one thing caught my empty crayon box. Recycle, Reduce, Reuse....

I realized that the little boxes inside that hold the crayons are the exact size of the learning cards I use alhamdulillah. These seen charade cards have been sitting on the table for a while waiting to be stored because I ran out of the little plastic bags I usually use. So one of those little empty boxes, the scrap construction paper and some foam animals spruced that little box right up and made it just right for storing those cards alhamdulillah. What do you use those little boxes for?


  1. Masha Allaah, very cute, happy cleaning. smile! I usually do not laminate cards because its very costly here, so I use these boxes to make your little cards dear sis!!! : )

  2. Now that is a brilliant idea Umm Maimoonah! Can you send me a pic? I'd love to add it to this post...I love that! make the cards from these boxes...barak Allahu feki dear sis *smile*

  3. You already have the pics sis, all the transport theme cards were made with these boxes. Any way will keep them all together and take a pic and send you Insha Allaah! Also for this time Ramdhaan activities we made post cards out of these boxes too, you will see in the blog soon Insha Allaah!
