Technology rocks, I just love it. Everything seems to be getting smaller and smaller, yet it’s able to hold more information, run faster, and perform better. technology is always changing, and it’s great, but it can often be hard to keep up with the times.
My husband and I are building on to our home, and I have been cleaning house. Getting rid of anything and everything to help maximize space. Plus if we don’t use it why have it. Tonight I was looking at all our DVDs, and Video games. WOW, we have way to many and many of them have not been watched in years. I mean sure there is some of my Disney movies that I would never get rid of, but what about all the others that have been collecting dust for the past few years?
I do not was to toss them, so I put my creative hat on. Which doesn’t happen very often, and came up with several things to do with old DVDs.
Make a disco ball for my 7 year old room. She would love this, it would be easy to make, and it would be something fun we could do together. All we would need is a big plastic ball, glue, string, and tons of DVDs. I’m not sure how many it would take, this is just an idea lol.
Cut the DVDs in the square pieces, get a piece of cardboard and clue the pieces to the cardboard and make a fun mirror for one of the kids. It would be fun, and without a doubt Vayda and Catie would love it.
Fun Birthday Cake Topper
I’m not sure who’s birthday yet, but I’m sure we can come up with something fun. Everyone in my family loves music, movies, and fun. I’m sure we could come up with some awesome cake decorating ideas.
Keep one in each car
Okay, so I probably should not know this… but I do. DVDs work awesome on frozen car windows. Yes, use it as an ice scraper. I still use one, but do not tell Shawn that is what really happened to his movie.
Make a clock
It would actually be really easy to make a clock. You could even take apart one of your clocks with the hands, and switch it out with a DVD. You could get creative and add some color to the DVD, or let your kids paint it so you have an awesome memorabilia.
If you have an artist in the house, what about painting them. They really would look neat if you had a set of 4 hung on the wall nice and organized. It would be a great conversation starter.
If you play Frisbee I’m sure you know it’s not an easy game to play, but loads of fun. Why not use the DVDs and really test out your skills. It’s worth a shot right!
You could use the as closet dividers.
You can get creative and make awesome DVD picture frames for your family and hand them out at Christmas.
Sure it might not be as crazy and fun, but there are plenty of others out here who would enjoy the DVDs you do not want.
There are places online where you can actually get paid for your old DVDs. If you need some extra money you might consider selling your DVDs online as well.
I’m sure you have a friend, or one of your kids that would love to have some of your DVDs. Why not ask hem and see if they want any before you start cutting, tossing, gluing or selling them.
Good luck with getting rid of all your old DVDs. Just remember that it can be fun, and I’m sure if you were to search online you could come up with 100s of things to do with your old DVDs. I hope you come up with something fun.
Have you already done something fun with old DVDS, CD’s or Video games? I would love to hear your ideas.
