Cub Crafts: Plastic Bottle Desk Organizer

It's always nice to find a real use for those plastic bottles you've been throwing in the recycling. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! And if your child is old enough for homework you'll appreciate this simple little craft. We all need help getting organized when we have work to do. Won't it be nice to have an attractive and functional pencil and pen holder at your child's homework table?

3. If desired, decorate the desk organizer with rick rack, lace, ribbons and other decorative materials. Use this on your desk to keep pens, pencils and other knick-knacks organized. Or look around the kitchen and see if there isn't something that would be better organized in this pretty little container

You could also give this to your new teacher with some pretty flowers!

You’ll need:

  • Clean used plastic bottle (such as a soda or water bottle)
  • Any size sturdy tape (like duct tape)
  • Scrap fabric
  • Fabric glue
  • Patterned or construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Rick rack, lace, ribbons, and other decorative materials

Instructions:

1. Cut the top off the plastic bottle. Apply tape on the raw edge.

2. Cover the plastic container with scrap fabric. Secure the fabric with fabric glue. If you don't have scrap fabric, you can cover the container with patterned or construction paper, or even gift wrapping paper or self-adhesive paper. 

3. If desired, decorate the desk organizer with rick rack, lace, ribbons and other decorative materials. Use this on your desk to keep pens, pencils and other knick-knacks organized. Or look around the kitchen and see if there isn't something that would be better organized in this pretty little container

 

 

Cub Cooking: Back-to-School Cookies

Back-to-School Cookies make the perfect lunchbox treat or after-school snack. These easy-to-make cookies start out from a box of cake mix and get their extra-crunchiness from graham crackers and their chocolaty-sweetness from lots of chocolate chips. Kids of all ages will love them!

 

 

 

What You'll Need:

  • 1 (15.25-ounce) package yellow cake mix
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 10 graham cracker squares, coarsely crushed
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2.  In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat cake mix, oil, brown sugar, and eggs.  Stir in cracker crumbs and chocolate chips.  Drop by teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets.
  3. Bake 12 to 14 minutes, or until golden around edges; remove cookies to wire racks to cool completely

 

Cub Conversations

 

Make a Time Capsule!

Preserving your artifacts is a fun way to celebrate your family now and later—just don’t bury the collection. When it’s unearthed, if ever, it’s usually a soggy mess.

Pile everything into an archival box, then stow it away in a cool, dark place. Include the big stuff (artwork, school reports, notes to your future selves) and the little (movie stubs, a printout of a Facebook page, a toy with its batteries removed so they don’t corrode).  Items that won’t stand the test of time: delicate clothing, food, or tapes and discs that will be outdated by technology. 

Add a silica-gel pack (which comes with new shoes) to absorb moisture, and set a date for the big reveal in 25 years.
