Toys, toys and more toys! After doing a little spring
cleaning and realizing how much our child has, we have decided to go on a
buying freeze. Our home is overrun with toys, games, puzzles and books. A toy box
in the living room, my son’s room, garage and outside. It never ends!
would not buy our son any toys. We are both crafty and mentioned that we should
just upcycle everyday items around the house to create soemthing. Right after we
decided on this, our son mentioned that he really wanted a jetpack so he could
be like Miles from Tomorrowland. Ha, challenge accepted!
Energizer EcoAdvanced AA batteries
2 2-Liter Soft Drink Bottles
1 Can of Pringles
Brown Kraft Paper
Battery operated string of lights
Lunch bag straps
Tear the paper in about 2”x2” strips and use the Mod Podge to glue the strips
to the outside of the drink bottles until fully covered. Continue to do the
same on the Pringles can – make sure to keep the lid, but do not cover with
paper. Once the 3 bottles have been covered and dried, place additional glue on
2 sides of the Pringles can to bind each of the drink bottles together.
placing the charging station inside the can and close the lid. For our lights
we picked up Energizer EcoAdvanced AA batteries from Walmart at the battery
display located by the registers. (Also available in AAA). I chose these
because they are Energizer’s longest lasting alkaline ever – which is what I
need knowing my son will forget to turn the lights off when not using. Plus
they are the first battery on the market to use recycled materials – guilt free
To create the straps, we cut off the handles from an old
lunch box and adhered them to each drink bottle. To create the flames, cut up
the t-shirt into several long strips and stuff them into the tops of the bottles.
Now suit up your child to test out the new jetpack and let their
imagination run wild!
