We have lots of little manipulatives and I LOVE when they come with a storage container of some sort. However, not all do. Plus, we tend to make some of our own manipulatives and I have to create my own storage. One of my favorite ways to store manipulatives are in recycled containers. Just peel off the labels and wash them out!
Can you tell that the plastic containers shown above once housed mixed nuts (purchased from Costco)? So, if you are in need of some storage for your manipulatives be sure to check your recycling first!
