I also explain to her that some things can't or won't be opened, like container of organic yoghurt to play with while I'm making dinner and in a rush. (I don't mind her making a mess, but in my mind food isn't for wasting, especially if its expensive stuff that I can't replace this week due to our budget.) I do give her something else to be opened though like a plastic see-through container of a tablespoon or so or uncooked rice. It rattles, its not sticky, its vaccuum-able, and its cheap to replace. It destracts her enough that I can do some quick cooking.
I figure its all a part of their normal develpment, that they're learning about their world and how it works. This too shall pass.
