After emptying this Cascade container, I knew I had to use it for a center at school! As a teacher constantly trying to come up with new ideas to keep the kids engaged, I saw the container as an alligator right away. Later, I did look this up on Pinterest and I saw that many other teachers have the same mentality as I do, and they turned their containers into alligators, too!
See the pictures below to see how I transformed the container with some Duck Tape and construction paper. I've created three simple games to put inside the container and I'm working on some more. I'll change the games/skills out easily as I see fit for my classroom. I'm also going to keep one at home for my girls to practice letters and sight words!
Here are the CHOMP! games that I've created so far:
