2. learn how to re-use products
The quilt covers from our Sheridan Kids Collection come packaged in a reusable cotton tote bag. These can be used for adventures, on picnics, for collecting shells at the beach, as a library bag.
But they aren’t the only products with a multipurpose use — anything can be reused, and you can educate your child as to how. Have you used up a candle and are left with the glass vessel? Use them to hold coloured pencils and textas, or as a vase for flowers.
Had packages delivered in a cardboard box? Add some paper plates and a touch of paint, and you’ve got a car. Stack it on top of something: a fort. Draw on it, make a treasure map.
If you have sheets that are looking a little frayed? Use it as a drop sheet, catching paints from arts and crafts. Cut out eyeholes, and you’ve got a ghost costume for Halloween.
