Parents, kids: Fear not the silica gel pack. Sure it says DO NOT EAT and THROW AWAY. But you should only follow one of those rules.
Instead, save the packs and use them a whole lot of ways:
Place them on the car dashboard by the windshield to keep it from fogging up.
Phone dropped in puddle? Place it in a sealed plastic bag with silica gel packets.
Kid can use (not eat!) them for projects, too. Check out Let Grow’s ideas for both generations by clicking here!
