DIY Glass Sippy Cup
Check out my new invention. Kelly has mentioned that we reuse glass jars for food storage. St. Dalfour jam jars are particularly suited for little kids' hands. Well, this morning we had a little accident where Ashley dropped the jar and her blueberry smoothie splashed everywhere.
To prevent this from happening again I turned the jar into a sippy cup. It just so happens that I own a special hole punch (in the photo above). You can buy these at arts and crafts stores. It's intended purpose is to punch through multiple pages of a homemade book, but it works equally well with this thin metal cap. The tool is used by hammering the back end like a chisel. I placed the lid on a block of wood, making sure to punch on the top side of the cap (so the sharp edge of metal is pushed inside away from the drinker). And voila! A glass sippy cup. We got the cool stainless steel straws on amazon.
