Spending quality time with my son is pretty important. I work outside the home, so being able to cherish moments while we are at home is very valuable for our family. From enjoying a nice dinner to learning and playing together I always make sure I create memories that will enrich my son's future.
Working together on crafts and projects bring us together and allow me to talk to him and learn about what is happening in school and encourage him to do give his best effort at everything he does.
We heard about a great contest for California families and since my son would like to attend college, he motivated me to create a craft using a milk container to enter the contest and maybe win $2000 dollars to start his college fund.
If you ever visit my house you will find always milk on the refrigerator. We use milk not only for cereal in the morning but also for cooking and off course to enjoy the occasional sweet treats. I have always loved milk and I glad my son is also a milk drinker. Finding and empty milk container for the contest was not difficult at our home. The hardest part was to choose what to make. So many cool ideas, however since we are all about recycling and saving for either toys or future education, we decided that the best thing to make was a piggy bank.
To our surprise it was easier that we though. We had all the materials available at home and the design was not difficult at all.
To make a piggy bank you will need:
As you can see the project is very easy and you can decorate yours as a pig with pink paint or any other colors. You can also make other items such as bird feeders and lego toy houses. The possibilities are endless.
