DIY:: Winter Crafting with Kids

Wednesday, January 5, 2011


Confession:  we haven't opened a school book since the holidays.  well, maybe a math book or two, but we have yet to sit at the school table and get serious.

and honestly, I'm okay with that.  soccer hasn't started back up.  we took a few weeks off of piano lessons and our coop semester begins next month.  so I'm savoring the down time and doing fun things we never seem to have time for in a school day-like treasure hunts and borax snowflakes.

Today, I'm crafting over at A Bushel and A Peck.  If you've got some antsy kids and a few supplies from round the house, stop over!

Love this idea -- I'm going to try it! Where do you find Borax?

Kristen, The Pajama Mama said...

borax is with the laundry detergent in any grocery store. it's cheap to keep on hand and can be used as a dishwashing detergent (with salt & vinegar) and or laundry detergent. i'm sure there are a ton of other uses, too!

i'd love to see your boys borax creations!:)
