I know I know... seems like an advanced topic for Kindergarten... and I'd defend it if I remembered WHY I did it... I am sure it had something to do with a book we were writing - but the point is it was FUN!
I got a few parents in the class to save their "clean" garbage for the week (read as: no food, no diapers, no tissues...) - and at the end of the week we'd split into teams, go through the garbage and make guesses about what kind of people lived in the household.
it's a little scary what your trash tells about you.
My trash today?
Empty Cake Mix Boxes: 2, strawberry & yellow
eggshells: probably just enough for those cakes
Empty Kit Kat Wrappers: 25
Empty M&Ms bag: 1(but only because there were some left in the other bag)
Snips from the tops of colorful melting chocolate: 5 (because the first 3 bags were already open)
Nearly empty can of frosting: 1
Microwave Popcorn Bags (Empty of course): 12
Unpopped Popcorn Kernels: Too many to count
Crumpled Paper Towels, stained with a rainbow of colors: Lots
Empty Kool-Aid Packets: 6 - all different flavors/colors
Wrappers from new ice cube trays - 3, double packed...
Empty 2 liter bottles of Generic Lemon Lime Soda: 1... the other 3 got thrown away at church.
Pizza Boxes: 3
Wrappers from the really yummy white chocolate bite size candies that I ate for "energy": Too many.
You know what this says about our family???
Pull out your hidden archaeologist skills and let me know...
all I know is that to my kids it says I spend way too much time and effort on treats for my youth group girls and not enough time making a healthy meal for my family.
|imagine the other pictures of colorful popcorn and rainbow drinks...|
Tonight I promise there will be an empty bag of tossed salad...
And a few more wrappers from those little white chocolate candies... nom....
