The top ten creative reuses of the orange bin as selected by the judges are shown below.  Many of the 89 entries in the “creative category,” were extremely imaginative!  The judges had the difficult task of diligently reviewing each entry to select these finalists.

Topic: Snow Fort
Small2_finalist_3

The old recycling bin is perfect for forming Snow Blocks for Snow Forts

  1. Pack the snow into the bin.

  2. Flip the bin over, and a snow block pops out (It comes out so cleanly because of the holes in the bottom of the bin).

  3. Pile up the snow blocks, and have a snowball fight! (A good, sturdy fort is essential to winning a snowball fight!).

Even more creative, in that it was conceived during the summer doldrums! Last thing most of us are thinking of in July is SNOW, so this creator was definitely thinking outside the "box" when he or she decided to put snow in it! Whether this idea wins or not, I hope to see a photo in "The Windsor Journal" or "The Reminder" of the first one built using this method.
