a found use

My last trip to Cantia I bought these little storage containers.  They are not made very well and are really small.  But seeing them there sitting on the shelf in the store, I just couldn't pass them up.  They were only $15 pesos (approx. $1.30 USD) for a set of 6.  Surely I can find some use for them.

They have just been sitting in my kitchen cabinets since I bought them.  I did use one once to put ranch dressing in for Bella to dip some carrots.

Then the other day the girls were wanting to do a crafting project and I realized those little containers would be perfect for them to use.

So, we got out the containers and put some beans, macaroni, yarn, colored rice and glue in them.  The girls had their own little containers to use. Perfect!

They had fun, made minimal mess and felt like artists.  I think these little containers have found their intended purpose.
