Isn't it funny how you can spend $25 and up on a toy for a child that gets played with a few times then tossed? Even if they requested that specific toy! My kids, ages 4 and 6 love playing with non-toy items such as twigs, leaves, sticks and rocks found outside. More so than any pricey and plastic-y toy. They spend hours whacking each other with twigs in the backyard or rock painting in the driveway at little cost to myself. Best of all....it's "real" fun. Imaginative play. Recently, my mom has been experimenting with painting rocks and the results have been impressive. It's incredible how painted rocks can come close to resembling just about any image you dream up. So far, we've tried pumpkins, turtles and a duck pond, all of which came up to scratch. And we have lots of unique ideas for you today!
Would it be too weird if I asked you to save your dryer lint for me? Okay. I agree! But dryer lint is highly flammable making it the perfect base for your own fire starters. Got a wood stove? Know someone who does? Ever want to start a bonfire quickly? These are the easiest and cheapest fire starters you can make.
So what costs less than 5 bucks and takes less than 5 minutes to make? A pumpkin centerpiece. It's true! You'll love one on your table this Fall, especially on Thanksgiving Day. I love surfing Pinterest for ideas just like most of you. But if it's not easy and relatively inexpensive to do, I won't follow through with it. This project was both easy and cheap so I was on board. I hope you are too!
