Babies are so cute with their chubby cheeks, wrist rolls, button noses, wisps of hair, the sweetest toes, and munchkin fingers.
In fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen anything cuter. They’re also full of poop. Sometimes, surprisingly, lots of it. So that means going through a lot of diapers, and that can be expensive. Now is the perfect time to sign up for a new membership at Sam’s Club to help cut down on those costs!

With a large family, Sam’s Club is a total timesaver. I love how easy it is to stock up on everything my family needs, from the latest electronics to clothes, frozen foods and pantry staples to baby necessities.
You can even order online then quickly pick up in store through their Club Pick-Up Service. Because who has time nor the patience to stand in a checkout line with a sleepy, unhappy baby?
And those babies, as adorable and huggable as they are, they go through a lot of diapers. I picked up a box of size 1 diapers for my baby. With those size 1’s, according to the below chart at 7 diapers a day, we can save over $18 just by buying at Sam’s Club. Our Sam’s Club membership will soon pay for itself, and already has with our $45 in Instant Savings!
Plus, we can have fun with all those boxes. It’s so easy to make a Empty Box DIY Puppet Stage using an empty Huggies box!
My kids have been into making their own Wooden Skewer Stick Puppets for awhile now. By simply drawing and coloring in a character, cutting it out, then taping it onto a wooden skewer or large craft stick, they have their own puppets just waiting for a puppet show.
Now, with the empty boxes, their Empty Box DIY Puppet Stage is set! Cut the top flaps off the box and wrap in wrapping paper. Also cut a rectangular slit along the back of one of the longer sides for the puppets. Tape a paper scene onto the back, too. Adhere black fabric to the front of the box. Hang the edge of the box with the slit off the end of a table, tape to secure. And the show is ready to begin!
The baby gets diapers, mama saves with her new Sam’s Club membership, and the older kids get a diy puppet stage. Sometimes, lots of poop really isn’t so bad.
Empty Box DIY Puppet Stage
- empty Huggies box
- wrapping paper
- cardstock, construction paper
- coloring and drawing mediums
- black fabric
- hot glue, school glue, & tape
- Skewer Stick Puppets
- box cutters
First, cut the top flaps off an empty box using box cutters. Also cut a rectangular slit along one the back of one side. This step should be done by an adult. We used a Huggies wipes box. Then, wrap it like you would a present. We even used Christmas wrapping paper. Be sure to cut the rectangle out so it’s open and tape all the wrapping paper in place.
With construction paper or cardstock, begin decorating the inside “scene”. This can be done however you like with paper, markers, paints, it’s up to you. Tape or glue it all in place.
Cut two strips of black fabric to the size of the box opening. Glue in place with hot glue gun. Punch a hole on both sides of the box, about equal in place. If the box is too thick, use the pointy part of the scissors. This would be another step for an adult.
Then, cut two lengths of twine. Insert one end in the punched hole, around the black fabric, and tie in place with a bow.
Who knew diapers could be such a win for everyone? If you’re looking to save on diapers and get a new Sam’s Club Membership, too, be sure to follow this link to sign up and receive $45 in Instant Savings!
