Anyone that knows me knows that my family LOVES Chick-fil-A! We go at least once a week, and often times more! They know us by name and we have made some precious friendships with a few of the hostess ladies. When I know they have something personal going on, I want to check up on them and they do the same for us. In fact, our last stop before heading to the hospital to meet Nathan (our adopted son) for the first time was a stop at Chick-fil-A. They were precious and had a baby gift for us and showered us with so much love that morning! The cow that they gave us rode home in Nathan’s carseat with him. There is so much love and emotion wrapped up in that place!
As a Chick-fil-A mom, I was challenged with a fun project of upcycling soup containers in a fun way. Since Nathan is 14 months now, I knew a sensory play set would be perfect for him! He loves to feel different textures and this would be PERFECT!
Here is how we did it! I gathered all the supplies I needed, 4 Chick-fil-A soup containers, washed and cleaned out. I knew I wanted to use both the lids and the containers to hold the sensory items.
For the lids, I gathered up velcro, bubble wrap, cardboard and straws. I glued the items in with E600 as I thought it would hold best and hot glue might melt the plastic.
For the containers, I gathered up cotton, a sheer scarf, a deck of cards, and slime. I wanted the items in the containers to be items we could take out and play with.
I love that these containers stack easily for storage and are air tight, so the slime doesn’t dry out.
My little guy loves playing with his new sensory play set and best of all, it was made from items we already had around the home and upcycled Chick-fil-A containers!
