Communion Cup Construction - Recycled Toy Extraordinaire

If you happen to attend a church that uses those plastic disposable communion cups for the communion service, then don't miss out on a great recycling opportunity. Communion cups, once they are cleaned and dried, make one of the best construction toys out there. I can vouch for this whole heartily, as they were one of my own favorite toys as a child.

My friends and I spent many quiet hours building communion cup pyramids. Though my own children seem to prefer building villages, capturing Lego men, and holding fairy tea parties. These little cups are perfect for sparking the imagination of a bored child on a rainy afternoon.

They are like Jenga, Legos, and a box of craft supplies all mixed up into one. And, you have the added bonus of being a friend to the environment by saving all that plastic from the trash. Not to mention, the startling breaking glass like sound when all those craftily constructed creations come crashing down.

It's great to be a homeschooler!
