I love summer! I love the sunshine…I love the freedom..I love it all….EXCEPT. We are already 2 weeks in…and I’ve already heard the dreaded words. “Mom, I’m BORED!”
MAN! I hate that phrase. And it always seems to come when I’m knee deep in working on something.
So I came up with a solution.
The I’m not bored anymore BOX!
It’s filled with all sorts of fun craft supplies to spark the imagination and get the creativeness flowing!
Most of this stuff is just stuff from around the house that my hoardingness wouldn’t let me throw away.
empty tape rolls
empty toilet/ paper towel rolls
any stickers that we get along the way
extra paint chips
empty spools of thread (or ribbon spools)
(most of these items can be found at the dollar store)
I also threw in some scrapbook paper and supplies that I didn’t want anymore (or had extras of)
Now–When I hear those dreaded words I plop down the box and let them create something totally crazy and awesome.
(I add in new things as I come across them to keep the box fun each time)
My daughter created this “cup holder” last time (its a paper towel roll wrapped in paper and decorated with coffee filters around it place your cups!
Her creativeness astounds me!
and HEY! I made a printable for you (I ended up printing it on some silhouette sticker paper…so I just stuck it right on)
