Recently I was realizing how much milk we go through, when a smart light bulb told me how much all these milk lids sort of looked like giant colorful coins—non choking hazard size coins not to mention the perfect fit for a certain little toy cash register.
This was the birth of “milk money.” I created boy and girl silhouettes from an old profile shot of Hendrix and me which I glued to the milk lid. I also cut out colored numbers to present a number recognition and counting opportunity. Lastly, I covered the top of the lid with clear packaging tape to prevent the image from peeling up. I sort of like the way they came out. What do you think?
