Toilet Valentine Box

Here is one of the kids valentine boxes from last year. There was A Valentine Box contest at our 4-H club meeting. This is the one my daughter made and she won one of the prizes.

She used a tupperware bowl as the actual toilet bowl. It took a lot of work for her to figure out how to attached a box to the back as a tank and also make it stand up. You can see she added on a holder for the toilet paper too. Plus she gave it away for the lid to stay open so people could put Valentine's inside.

FREE Take a Kid Ice Fishing Weekend Coming Up


Mark your calendars!!! You have a bit of notice on this one! January 13-15, 2018 is going to be Take a Kid Ice Fishing Weekend, where any MN resident 16 and older can fish for free (no license required) if they are fishing with someone 15 and under.

If you have been meaning to do some ice fishing, bring a kid with you and teach them a little bit about our MN history of sitting on buckets, freezing, trying to catch a fish through a hole you have drilled in the ice. I am positive they will never forget these memories!

Drawing and Painting a Goldfish

This was a fun project that we did by following a tutorial on Pinterest. As you can see, we all ended up with something a little bit different and my son took the idea and expanded to further to make an Angelfish instead. You can try drawing Goldfish like we did with this tutorial on The Drawbot.

Easy Holiday-Winter Wreath Made with Dollar Store Items



I picked up this red tinsel wreath (plus the other supplies) at Dollar Tree but I didn't think the wreath itself was big enough, so I also bought this much larger plastic snowflake and then pack of snowflake ornaments to layer them together and create a fun winter wreath. The ribbon was something I had leftover at home. For only $3, I think this turned out really cute and is really lightweight and can hang from a suction cup on my door.

I love to make wreaths, check out my other wreath ideas for various holidays and season and made from different materials:
