Crafting with Test Strip Containers


Ever thought about repurposing those empty test strip containers?

Looking for a fun project to do with the kids?

Madeline, Jack, Max and I got crafty one day this past summer. Here’s what we did.

We bought some fun art supplies.


We grabbed our glue, tape, scissors and paper cutter.


We tapped into our creativity.





And we made tooth fairy containers!









A few weeks later, when the kids were swimming,
Max jumped out of the pool and exclaimed, "My tooth fell out!"
He was so excited. It was his first lost tooth.


We knew exactly where to put that tooth,
and later that night,
Mary the Tooth Fairy knew exactly where to find it.

What a terrific idea - better than any of those store-bought Tooth Fairy containers. And congrats to Max on his first lost tooth, so exciting!!

Gosh Heidi,
What a great idea. I always feel like we should use those test strip containers for something. They seem instinctively handy. Thanks for sharing the project...

Oh, wow, what a fun activity and super-cute idea! Great mini-gift notion, too, for nieces and nephews and the kids of friends who are in (or approaching) prime tooth-losing age!
