Favorite Things!

Super easy! NOT original! But super fun!

We subscribe to the wonderful world of Chirp Magazine. Instead of just throwing the issues away when we are finished we try to come up with creative ways to use them. Sometimes they wind up being coloring books, other times we cut out "guys" to play with. This time around we got a large piece of construction paper, cut out a spring/summer theme, pasted it on the construction paper, added a few personal touches and then taped on a calender for the month of April. Each issue has a month's calender in it, so we have hung this on the wall in the boys bedroom & we will update it each month with a new calender. In the Fall we will make a new one to hang in their room. This was ridiculously easy & loads of fun. I didn't even have a "Martha Stewart meltdown moment" while doing this project with the boys! (I was very proud of myself for that!) Try it & let me know what you think, if you have any other crafty ideas to add...
Please share!

PS. Thank-you God for creative hearts & minds.
