I used to wash them and most would finish up in the ‘junk box’ along with all sorts of other knick-knacks.
On a rainy day I’d get out the junk box, sellotape, glue, paints, etc set it on the veranda and tell the kids to get to it and use their imaginations.
They’d come up with all sorts of weird and wonderful things.
The result of imagination
Yes, Christmas is over for another year.
One thing for sure, you’ll have plenty of this stuff left over from the frenzy of Christmas morning.
Your Christmas may not have been so green this year, but you can make next year an environmentally friendly Christmas. Save your wrapping paper. It only takes a few minutes to flatten it out and fold it and store it in a box.
Just think, if every family did this, how many trees would have been saved.
Happy New Year!
