Thrifty Thursday ~ Save Those Bottle Caps!

Look at me blogging every day this week!  I'm not sure I'll be able to keep it up when I return to school  next week, but I'm certainly going to do my best.

It's been For.Ever since I did a Thrifty Thursday post.  With so many of us on tight budgets, I need to focus much more on some frugal classroom ideas for us.

I also try to recycle and re-use as much as possible.  While I'm far from being as 'green' as I'd like to be, I do my best.


I have some plans in mind for these.

To be prepared, I'm going to start saving up screw-on lids from soft drinks, water, Powerades, milk, and orange juice.  I'm also going to be on the lookout for the flip-top lids.

I might ask for parents to save these and send them to me as well.  {Washed and dried, preferably!}

If you'd like to be ready for some math, science, and social studies ideas, start saving or gathering up some for yourself!

Enjoy :)

  1. Last year I wanted bottle caps for a way to practice sight words with my kindergartner who was struggling. During testing times, we give our students small water with their snack. I sent an email out and asked every one to have their students save them. I literally received hundreds and hundreds... several days of testing, several hundred kids, you get the picture.
    Could be option... I have used them for center games already twice this year!
