Thrive: Building Block Cans

When I saw this over at Thrive, I immedietely fell in love.  I couldn't believe I hadn't thought of something like this before.  It was genius (and I'm such a genius, right?!!). 
Seriously, what a great way to upcycle tin cans and make yourself some happy kids.
Instead of cans weighing multiple pounds falling on your poor sensitive toes as your children see how high they can stack them, why not save yourself the ice and empty/clean the cans and add a little paint for added pizzazz.
Go on over to Nike's blog and you will see why I have a new love.  Thanks, Nike for a fabulously wonderful and idea.

Hello! I am a follower of your blog, and have been for a while! I am reaching out to the blogs I love as well as my readers for a little help and advice. I was nominated a while back for the Top Blog of the Year on Blog Guidebook. I am now in the top ten, and to reach the final round, which is the top TWO, I must beg and plead for votes. If you could in any way help me out, maybe if you could throw a bone to me on your blog, or if you require, I can do a giveaway! I have to find methods to gain voters and your help in some way would be greatly appreciated. Please met me know either way,as well as any ideas you may have. Thank you in advance! My blog is and the link to the voting page is There is no registration, signup, or email required to vote, which is great, but finding routes to gain supporters is tough! I look forward to hearing from you!

I've got the Pampered Chef can opener. Allows me to make all these fun projects without any fingers getting sliced.
