My kids go through a lot of cereal, so a lot of cereal boxes go right into the recycling bins. But not this week! I decided to use a few to create book holders for the books my kids read.
My son has to read every night for homework so we have lots of easy readers laying around. My daughter is beginning to show interest in reading, so we have a lot of phonics readers and handmade books around. Unfortunately, the basket I was planning on using to hold the books hasn't quite been working.
So I took a few cereal boxes and cut them diagonally like a magazine holder.
Then using a combination of spray adhesive and tape, I attached some leftover wrapping paper to each one to make them look cool for the kiddos.
And added labels so the kids could easily find their books.
This was a quick and easy way to organize our books and didn't cost me a thing!
