    Water Bottle Lids

    I take a bottle of water with me every day to school. I realized how great the lids would be for game pieces/manipulative. They are great size. I would try to remember to keep them and I quickly grew a huge collection.

    How can you use them for game pieces if they are all clear? Use different colored permanent markers to color the tops.

    Another idea I found for the lids was to put different operation labels on top ( + - X / ). You could easily make a game with math problems and instead of having a spinner etc, put the lids in a non see-through bag and pull one out to see where you get to move on the gameboard. Then answer one of the questions from the pile labeled with that operation. I hope this makes sense.

    You could also easily write the letters of the alphabet on top and make a center activity with them.

    The possibilities are endless.
