you like cheap crafts right?
i mean as in money cheap, not quality cheap.
you like easy crafts right?
as in, i wanna do this in between 7 loads of laundry and cooking a 6-course family meal all the while waiting for the dishwasher to complete the cycle so you can unload and quickly get to your manicure.
you like quick crafts right?
as in 10-15 minute quick that requires no brain usage at all to do it but looks like you spent hours once completed.
maybe, this is the craft for you?
i don't know.
but it is cheap, quick and easy and something the kids can do as a bonus.
they are $1 each at target.
i have about a million of them.
in all shapes and sizes, not just these.
from parties my kids went to, from parties i gave, from classroom parties, from party parties.
and guess what?
my kids never use them!
i mean, for one thing, how many erasers can one person carry?
do they really make THAT many mistakes?
and there is a 115% chance of losing them if they choose to carry only one or a few of them.
but most importantly they are way too cute to use! hehe
perhaps this one would be much better to have.
so anyway, let's use them for this:
take any vase or box or glass or whatever you have and make this:
group them in 4 equal groups, so each side of your box has the same number of erasers.
this is great math practice for all you moms out there.
(double duty=awesome mom tutor)
make any kind of design you want!
we tried placing them in fancy patterns before gluing but ended up liking the simpler lines.
we had a few extra for the top.
put whatever you want in it.
candy, flowers, halloween straws, plasticware for a party, whatever!
hope it's your kinda craft :0)
