What's a fun way to repurpose household items into toys or crafts?

I love glass jars! Spaghetti sauce, jelly, salsa, you name it! They are great for all kinds of storage - pantry, fridge, freezer, craft items...... And they look so cute. You can even dress them up by painting the lids (with leftover house paint) or add cute labels.

Do you know any great children's books that teach kids about being eco-friendly?

There are a few out there, but I really think modeling the behavior and teaching them young is the best. They grow up composting, using a reusable water bottle, recycling and not thinking twice about it. My daughters (at 9 and 11) automatically go get their reusable shopping bags when we go hit the mall!

What organic or healthy snacks do your kids love? Please share a link to a recipe if you have one.

We love granola and granola bars. Here are 2 of our favorites:
