Sunday Suggestions

On the Cheap

Warning: if you find yourself nodding in agreement with Kate when she says "I don't care how much fun it is, you don't have to do the laundry", well you might want to skip this one. I will be laying out a drop cloth in the garage for this... nuff said.

So I haven't actually done this project with the girls yet. I am purposely saving it for a really bad day. Because it has the potential to keep my little people from harming each other and therefore keeping me from drinking alone.

I bought both girls a $5 corkboard from IEKA. Now all we need is paint, glue, jewels, scraps of beautiful fabric, and possibly some shells from vacation. Maybe if I'm feeling really daring permanent markers and the glue gun!

I'm also saving this for closer to school starting because I plan on hanging them in the hall beside their doors to tack up good grades, calendars and cute pictures they make.

Oh hell, I really haven't done it yet because "I don't care how much fun it is, you don't have to do the laundry" or clean up after them! But they will love it, it will occupy a lot of their time and since we have all the supplies already it's a perfect stand by.

It sounds like a great craft. Unfortunately, boys just do not go for that kind of thing!

sounds like fun. It may be just minimal clean up...not like finger painting or tie dying. Glad those days are over.

Great idea. I've been mulling over how to make a Grand Central Terminal in my upstairs hallway for posting reminders & checklists...

Have fun, whenever :D
