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!

I've been out of the juice box phase for a couple of years now, but I will remember this tip for when the little cousins come over.....you're right, only a mom can get excited about this kind of stuff.

This is great I am passing it on to my daughters and grandkids! Thank you!

Good idea, I bought mine this little plastic holder called a dwink and it's great. But I like this idea for when she's a bit older and because you don't need to carry anything extra with you.

Now that is simply one of the most genius things I have ever heard! Thank you so very much, my floors love you for it! As do my daughter's outfits.
Nice to meet you through wfmw!

Brilliant. Just pure brilliance! My two year old probably couldn't manage this (and he's usually the one who squirts it), but my four year old sure could.

I've always thought there had to be a better way to avoid the squirting of the juice! Great tip to pass along...

How are you?? I'm finally back to my normal self and I am so thankful!
