How do I repurpose a storage bin lid?


I have a few 10 gal and up storage bins, but can not use the lids because I have things that stand up in them. But I am stuck with a tote that only has lids in them now. I would like to reuse, or repurpose them, but after spending 3 hours looking on google and Pinterest, I have come up totally empty handed. Any ideas would be awesome. Thank you

    if you have kids you could make a worm farm.

    using duct tape, tape down something clear like saran wrap or clear packaging wrap placing it on the "inside" lip of the lid get some worms and a little dirt and let the little ones have fun. I personally would keep it outside haahaa.

    Make a beware of dog sign. Even if you don't have a dog its a safety trigger.

    get a couple magnetic strips glue it on the lid and make it into a tool holder, screw drivers, it in the garage or a place in your home where its convenient for you. You can always spray paint it the color you want before adding the magnets.

    You could turn it vertical and glue elastic loops to hold wrapping paper, it could store under the bed in a closet behind a door( you could use Velcro strips to tape it on a closet door).

    Posting a photo of the kids would be helpful so I can see what you're working with
