I am obsessed with containers

We have a lot of toys, many of which have little parts. I am always trying to keep the parts together. There’s no sense having a Mr. Potato Head if you cannot find the facial features.

Lately, I have been buying plain plastic shoe boxes for the toys. Simple enough. But I may have went a bit far this time. I made Pookie a container for his stacking ice cream cone game. The game has a plastic cone and 10 scoops of differently colored ice cream that you stack on top. The container I found is one of those cardboard tubes used as a gift box for a bottle of wine. Mamaw was getting rid of it and I snatched it up…because I am obsessed with containers. But, I had no idea what I would do with it; crayons, maybe, I thought.

Then it dawned on me…Stacking Ice Cream Cone! The perfect shape! Pookie is OK with it and he seems happy that all the pieces are there every time he wants to play with it. It is also teaching him that everything has a place; I took a picture of the toy and taped it to the outside of the tube so he knows what goes inside. Most importantly, he looks cute carrying around his wine box.
