Today I'm going to talk about something that is both fun & silly at the same time. Most days I write with a pencil but not always and when I don't want to work with them I keep them on my desk in a container I made.
The other day I was looking at them and got thinking how can I make them less boring to look at?
I remembered the replacement erasers we used to have for them. From there I remembered some more fanciful ones I'd seen in the Oriental stores. I thought, I can do that, and it would be a good way to use up some of those felt squares I have lying around.
A search on Pinterest found dozens of DIY ideas and found a web site called Play Ideas which has 2 articles devoted to the subject and two others that had ideas withing them. Click here to see the search results on this site.
I couldn't decide on one theme so I am still thinking about it but I will do this.
It occurs to me that you probably don't understand why I would look for kids crafts instead of more adult versions. The answer has two parts:
1) You are never too old to have fun playing rather it is crafts or games.
2) They are easy and quick and when you don't have or want to spend too much time on a project they are perfect.
