Have you begun collecting coins for our ‘Change for Change’ coin drive?
Raiding the recycle bin is an easy place to find a container to collect coins in but the creative container ideas below might inspire you to get started right away – or to add a second container – for your coin drive.
1. Decorate an old wipes container as a great reminder of how necessary “the change” is.
2. Place a jar near the washing machine with a note that says “Did you check your pants?” A reminder not only to empty the change from the pockets before throwing pants in the machine, but a reminder of a similar phrase many moms have said to their little ones while peaking into their diaper “Let me check your pants”. Other clever saying ideas: Pamper a Baby, Share the Luv, or Give a Little Huggie.
3. Empty formula cans are a great reminder of a baby’s basic needs and they are easy to decorate. Cut a slot in the plastic lid for adding change.
4. Collect your bounty in a booty; throw change into a little baby shoes.
Every 25 pennies will buy at least one diaper so get started today.
Have fun with it! Please share pictures of your creative container on our Facebook page or tell us where you will be collecting coins (home, office, etc). Thank you so much for supporting Nestlings!

Filled coin containers will be collected at Pumpkinfest in downtown Zeeland October 4, 5, and 6. Nestlings will be on the corner of Main & Elm helping with the wood and glue sculptures (a very popular attraction you might be familiar with if you have attended Pumpkinfest in the past) After counting the coins Nestlings will be sure to recycle all the containers collected.
