Sunflower Seeds + Orbit Gum ?!?!

Sunflower seeds. A healthy snack. Inexpensive. And one that can be purchased in the U.S....unlike many of the other snacks that GG is used to eating. More sunflower seeds have been eaten here in the past month than in the past ten years.

For Christmas, BigSis gave LilDude a couple "BigePaks" of Orbit gum in his stocking. I found the empty containers while cleaning out LilDude's room a few weeks ago and decided they'd make great snack containers. The lid has three openings...the entire top can screw off for larger items, or you can pop off the large round clear plastic top or tiny square opening. Both the "pop tops" are on hinges, essential for easy kid access.

It's great for a lot of snacks, but it's perfect for sunflower seeds. It doesn't spill and it's easy for little hands to get just a few seeds out at a time.

So anyway, next time you end up with an Orbit gum container, think twice before tossing it. Or give it to me. ;) I'll use it!
