My son has a thing for Legos. I have a thing for keeping his active mind and body busy. When he least expects it and when I need it the most, I whip out this repurposed, plastic spice jar, filled with random Lego pieces and tell him to create whatever he can with all of these pieces. He likes the challenge and I can actually get a few minutes of focus when I especially need it.
All you need to do is wash the jar in some sudsy water to get the label and glue off. It takes a little elbow grease, but a few short, scrubs should do it. I like these jars because they are translucent, plastic and waterproof. The lid is simple to put on and take off and it doesn’t take up a bunch of space in your bag.
I found these spice jars online. The one in the middle is an identical size to Hank’s jar. They are inexpensive, but nothing beats repurposing one for free.
