Earth Day projects are a big deal in our house, or at least we try to make it that way. I wouldn’t say I’m an eco-warrior, but I do respect this planet and my family so I want them both to be healthy for years to come. That’s why I’m excited to partner with Stonyfield® Organic Kids® to tell you about their yogurt and how it helps me make every day a more wholesome day for my family.
I even have some ideas about how to reuse the containers for some fun Earth Day projects! Because Earth Day is so important to me, I thought I’d throw in some fun Earth Day projects for your used Stonyfield® Organic Kids® yogurt containers. These ideas are fun for the kids, encourage creativity, and make for good, old-fashioned fun.
1. Marker and crayon storage
With this fun, easy craft, your old containers become a great way to get the kids organized. This is one of my favorite Earth Day projects. Simply glue pretty wrapping paper around your yogurt containers to create a quick and easy storage solution for all those markers and crayons that are lying around.
2. Paint containers
This one is the easiest Earth Day projects of all because you really don’t have to do anything! Just thoroughly wash out your yogurt containers and use them to hold paint so your kids can create without making a huge mess.
3. Cup phones
Remember the old cup phones we made as kids? You know the ones with a can on each end connected with a piece of string? You can do the same thing with your yogurt containers! All you need to do is punch a hole in the bottom of each container and thread a string through each one. This is one of my girls’ favorite Earth Day projects.
Going organic is a great way to celebrate Earth Day
From clothing to makeup to food, I often buy organic because it’s better for me, my family, and the Earth.
Stonyfield® Organic Kids® is the #1 organic kid’s yogurt, and that’s no surprise. They’ve been one of the most trusted brands of yogurt for over 35 years. I love their yogurt because it’s certified Non-GMO Project Verified, which means each cup is always made without toxic persistent pesticides, artificial hormones, antibiotics, or GMO’s. That matters. Just calling something natural isn’t a guarantee, but being Non-GMO Project Verified is. It’s a guarantee that foods – like this yogurt – are made by farmers who don’t plant GMO crops or give their animals GMO feed.
In addition to using ingredients that don’t harm the environment, the brand uses packaging that’s good for the environment as well. Their multipacks are made from plants, which have a far lower carbon footprint than petroleum-based cups. They’re also far better for the environment.
Another great thing about this yogurt is that it has less sugar. The company just completed a sugar reduction across its Stonyfield® Organic Kids® lineup, giving it 25% to 40% less sugar than other children’s yogurt brands. They’re easy to carry, too.
Stonyfield® Organic Kids® comes in cups, pouches, tubes, and smoothies to make it easy for the kids to snack on the go and for me to put them in their lunch boxes. They’re perfect for just about every occasion.
I love giving my kids Stonyfield® Organic Kids® yogurt. Their line of yogurts are better for the kids and better for the environment, and that’s what I’m all about. Head over to the brand’s website and check out their line of Stonyfield® Organic Kids® yogurt. When your kids are finished enjoying their yogurt, be sure to try these fun Earth Day projects, too.
Which is your favorite of these Earth Day projects?
If you’ve tried any of these Earth Day projects, I’d love to know! Which is your favorite one? And do you have any other fun ways to re-use yogurt containers?
