Making Storage Containers with Reclaimed Plastic Bottles

Making Storage Containers with Reclaimed Plastic Bottles

I got this idea when I was operating a home kindergarten. Laundry detergent bottles are so sturdy!! It’s a shame to throw them away!!
We’ve also used them in the sand, to carry objects outside, etc. The handle makes it quite handy for children, and you can use them for anything you wish!

Painting Halloween Pumpkins

Painting Halloween Pumpkins

We have a tradition in our blended family ; it’s a tradition that goes back seven years ago when I met a wonderful life companion.
He’s the one who introduced this tradition to the family. One day, he brought a superbly painted pumpkin for our very first Halloween together. We painted another one to celebrate our new little family.
Since then, instead of carving pumpkins out, we paint them.
