I don’t know about your household, but in ours fights over the remote are a daily occurrence. One kid wants to watch this, another this, and me or my husband another show (usually not the same one). But there is one thing we all can agree on that we all love to watch – American Pickers. As soon as I turn it on, everyone stops what they are doing and sits down to see what Mike & Frank find.
Recently my oldest daughter has been asking about heading out to do some picking of our own – and since I received a great picking kit from Capri Sun I figured we’d give it a try. (These great recycled Capri Sun bags were made by TerraCycle – and you can win one of your own. Find out how below!)
If your thinking of heading out on a picking trip of your own, you’ll need the following:
- a sturdy reliable bag to carry all your stuff
- a flashlight for those dark, hard to see in places
- gloves – keep your hands protected
- a magnifying glass – helps you see the small prints, or faded print
- Notebook & Pen – always make notes of what you find and where
- Bandanna – to wipe your face or protect your mouth & nose from flying germs
- Water & Capri Sun Big Pouches – you have to stay hydrated, and we know that
teens have a bigger thirst – the Capri Sun Big Pouch gives them a 2 for 1 without all the fuss
- The Kid Pickers Official Guide to Picking book, that you can purchase here
We received a great picking kit with all the fixins’ and the great news? Capri Sun is giving away
100 of these kits in their Capri Sun Pickers Contest!!
We have a lot of places in Ohio to go picking. Just up the road there is Lebanon, OH all the way up to Waynesville, OH that are great areas known for antique and collectibles. My daughter & I headed out and were lucky enough to find some street vendors selling some great old stuff. My daughter jumped in right away – she was soo excited and wanted desperately to find some hidden treasures.
Her favorite things to look for were old toys and books; we made our way thru a ton of shops and lots of street vendors. We could of spent all day there (well, we pretty much did!) Finding just one thing to submit for the Capri Sun Pickers Contest? Not soo easy!

I love the idea of repurposing/upcycling and I think it’s an awesome lesson for kids! Thanks for sharing!
Upcycling is so much fun…
Sounds like the Capri Sun Big Pouch juice drinks are a hit in your home and that you had a great time going on a picking adventure with your daughter. Thanks for sharing. #client
