Go Fly a Kite!
â€śIâ€™m bored!â€ť is the most annoying thing my kids can tell meâ€¦wait, maybe its â€śIâ€™m hungryâ€ť. But usually when they say the latter they really mean the previous! So far, I have kept the girls relatively busy and I have not heard the dreaded words. I am preparedâ€¦just in case. I came across an easy project (on pinterest of course!) and finished it before the older girls were out of school. I use it with my summer display, so it is both decorative and functional :)
Here is where I got my inspirationâ€¦. http://www.shabbybeachnest.com/101-idea-im-bored-jar/ . She has a lot of great ideas (with printables)â€¦I couldnâ€™t get them to print the right size for my popsicle sticks and I didnâ€™t want to waste a ton of paper so I just cut my paper in strips and mod podged them on the sticks. After they dried, I used a sharpie and wrote down the ideas. I up cycled a tin can and already had the wide popsicle sticks and scrap paper on hand. I had some cute kite paper that I used for the popsicle sticks and cloud paper for the can. So instead of seeing â€śIâ€™m boredâ€ť every time I walk past the jar, I thought it would be cute to label it â€śGo fly a kite!â€ť. Even the girls have caught on and ask if they can go fly a kite instead of telling me that horrible phrase!
