Works For Me Wednesday- Holding Juice Boxes by the "Ears"
It's Works For Me Wednesday time at We Are That Family. I wanted to share a tip that I learned about a couple years ago that works for me. No, I'm not promoting Juicy Juice brand juice, but I am using it for my prop. When I was at the park with my kids a couple years ago, another lady was feeding her kids lunch and she told them to hold their juice boxes by the ears. So I payed attention as they held their juices by the two little flaps or "ears" that fold out on top of the box. This way they don't squeeze it out on themselves. "This woman is genius!", I thought to myself. She said she learned it from school when she used to be a teacher. I'd never heard of this before and thought it was great. I guess only a mom can get that excited about holding a juice box, but I did. So, for the times that we do actually have juice boxes at our house, which isn't a lot, I remind the kids to hold it by the ears and we don't have any messes.
Here is the juice box with its "ears" out. None of my kids were around to demonstrate when I had time to take the picture, but I think you get the idea. Try it and see what you think!
