Just Doing My Best: Plan Ahead for Some Frugal Summer Fun

Plan Ahead for Some Frugal Summer Fun


Believe it or not, summer is just around the corner. Now is the time to start saving plastic bowls from butter, yogurt, whipped topping and anything else that you can envision as a fun outdoor tool or toy.

I'm sure your children can find many uses for the plastic dishes, but some ideas are the sand box, at the beach, for mud pies, and chalk paint. OK, so chalk paint might be new to you. My daughter created it and has played with it the last two summers. Watch for a post from her later this spring detailing her creation.

Just stash a small box somewhere out of the way to collect these bowls and old plastic containers. Your children will love it!

I can't wait to read about the chalk paint.
 
Thanks, it will be fun for her to write about it. She would spend HOURS on this project.

Thanks for reading!
