hot water bottle recycling

What to do when your ancient hot water bottle starts to perish? 

Well, I asked the kids for a few suggestions and we came up with this and thought it was a good idea-

.....The pot mat..... (or trivet as it's sometimes called- even though a correct trivet will have 3 or more legs to which to stand the pot on)...  but who needs legs for your trivet!  It's just more to store!

Step 1: Cut around the edges of the sides of the hot water bottle and you get two mats out of each bottle!
What a deal!
The finished pot mat!
Blake's thought making a snorkel out of the offcuts was also a great idea.  I told him he
might have to do some trials before he tries to sell them.....
