I love hanging out in the Dollar Store. My latest find were some water bottle ice trays. It is really a great idea. The compartments in the trays are long and slender so that the frozen ice can slide right through the mouth of a bottle of water. But, when I saw them, my mind started reeling! Here is what I came up with:My water bottle ice trays are now my kid’s Q-Tip Counting Trays. All I did was use my labeler machine to make the number labels and I stuck them along the compartments of the tray. While at the Dollar Store, I also grabbed some fun yellow Q-tips and voila a brand new learning toy for my kiddos to use to work on counting and fine motor skills. Since I already had the labeler on hand, the total cost for the 2 pack of trays and the Q-tips was only $2!
