I’m all about modern convenience. Especially with two busy kids, time is often something we don’t have a lot of. When this is the case, I am so very grateful for fast food restaurants with healthy food options. There aren’t many, but we have two or three favorites we frequent. However, clean up time comes and when I start to throw away/ recycle our trash, I am often overcome with quilt. Between cups, bags, straws, containers, etc, there is often more to throw away than I would like. After a recent trip through Chick-fil-A (I love their grilled chicken and fresh fruit option for the kids!), I challenged my kids to come up with a way to UPcycle their food containers instead of REcycling them. The ideas they came up with are not only creative, but super easy! Check out what my 4 year old made last year by clicking here!
My 11 year loves the opportunity to eat out (especially at CFA!). It didn’t take long for him to decide all he needed to do was cut a small slit in the lid and create a bank out of his Chicken Tortilla Soup bowl. This bank doesn’t hold savings for just any ole’ thing though. It’s a special savings for a trip back to Chick-fil-A!
Chick-fil-A container & lid
Talk about easy! Simply cut a small slot in the lid of container and put back on. Fill with money as available and that’s it!
How will you UPcycle your next disposable Chick-fil-A container? Check out their Chicken Noodle or Chicken Tortilla soup and then share in the comments of this post or on social media your creation. We’d love to share your creation 🙂

Great post! When a kid saves, it’s always a good sign. Though you should not constrain yourself on using a Chick-fil-A container and lid. 🙂
