So, take a look at the before and afters. Hopefully you can find a little trash in your house to make some fun toys with. Bonus: if your kids are old enough, they can do it themselves. My fetus is not old enough.
I had way more fun than I should with utensils on Saturday. Mike and I have a set of wooden spoons and utensils that are starting to lose their purpose. We are dishwasher people, and the wood isn’t standing up to it. In fact, it is splitting and making them useless. Go figure.
What to do with them? I didn’t want to throw them away (Pinterest has made me into a trash collector), so I stashed them in the cupboard until I could think of something. Then I stumbled across this! “Perfect for Ellen!” I said to myself. And on Saturday, I amused myself all night making all kinds of cool creatures for her.
I skipped the feathers, glitter and googly eyes and just went with non-toxic paint. I thought the former things would probably end up in Ellen’s mouth (probably means definitely), and paint was fun enough. None of it had to do with laziness.
