Well, you know how feel about plastic and my kids. I’m not a fan. So, I’ve been hunting for the perfect cups for them. I also don’t like cleaning up spills so I’ve had to factor that into my search. I came upon the Ball jars. I love the idea of them using these as their cups. So, I bought a dozen and drilled holes for their straws into the lids of them…which after a while began to rust. Plus, it’s not easy to file down the holes after they’ve been drilled, making the inside of the lid sharp. Not so good.
So, yesterday I was at the store and I found plastic lids for the ball jars. They have those! I never knew. I can deal with a plastic lid and a glass jar for the cup. I am actually super thrilled about this!
The girls and I got them ready and I drilled holes into them where the straws will go. (Chloe took pictures of me drilling the holes. Pretty good, huh?!)
And speaking of straws, did you know that stainless steel straws exist? Less waste and toxins with stainless straws. Overall, I’m very pleased with this change and progress in our transition to organic living.
