A couple weeks ago, I received a box containing 2 packs of Solo cups and a bunch of other goodies -- stickers, sunflower seeds, garden signs, straws and more. My 3 kids thought it was the funniest box of things we've received in a while, but when I told them they could decorate the cups they got excited.
I know we try to be green as much as possible, but sometimes disposable cups are easier. I like Solo cups because they are sturdy and can be easily washed and reused! They are also perfect for starting seedlings.
We took a pack with us to a friend's house and the kids had a great time decorating the outside of the cups with markers and stickers. Their personalized cups were easy to spot all day long and we didn't go through as many cups as if they hadn't been able to easily keep track. Unfortunately, my pictures from that day were corrupted -- but if you have fun with Solo cups, you can enter their fun photo contest!
Solo Cups has a photo contest running right now (through August 6, 2010) and your photo having fun with Solo cups could make you a winner! There are daily winners, weekly winners as well as a grand prize winner! You could win up to $5,000! (Imagine the fun you could have with that!)
Disclosure: I received product from Solo Cups and MomSelect. No further compensation was provided, and all words are my own.
