Living an environmentally conscious life often means getting creative with what you already have at home. Show your child how to live green by transforming old CD cases into drawer dividers. The best part? Not only are you reusing old things that normally go in the trash, but you're also helping your kid get organized in the process.

What You Need:

  • 2 empty CD cases
  • Heavy duty glue
  • Thick ribbon

What You Do:

  1. Start by having your child open the CD cases so they form 90 degree angles.
  2. Place a large dot of glue into the joints of the cases (where the flaps meet) and let dry.
  3. Have her put the two cases together so they form a box, then glue the edges together. Let dry.
  4. Now cover the cases with ribbon to give them a softer texture. Help her wrap the ribbon around the cases, letting the edges of the ribbon overlap slightly, gluing in place she goes.
  5. Let the glue dry.

Place the CD box in your child's drawer and show her how it works as a divider. To really get organized, make multiple CD case dividers in different colors and sizes. To make a larger box, use 4 CD cases instead of 2.
