Foot -Pedal Trash Cans

If your family has a foot-pedal trash can, then I have a fun activity idea for you! I came upon it accidentally this afternoon when I inadvertently placed one of my baby's toys on the top of our kitchen trash and then pushed the pedal to open the canister. The toy went flying across the room as if it had been flung by catapult.

Of course, I then had to experiment with different toys and different positions on the trash can. Toys were flying everywhere!

I only regret that I don't yet have children old enough to have enjoyed it with me. My husband doesn't count; he enjoyed the whole thing but only to poke fun at me (as you can see by the amused mocking expression in this picture as he sent a block flying across the dining room)

I would have enjoyed this and my two older children would have loved it!
