*** Note*** This was the guest post I did for Honeybear Lane lat month. I didn't change it because . . . because I am feeling a little bit lazy if you want to know the truth . . .
Hello Honeybear Lane readers!
I am so happy that Heidi is letting me join you again. I am Amy, from Amy's Craft Bucket.
I love my kids. I love crafts. I especially love making crafts with my kids. I hope you'll stop by and discover fun ways to keep little hands busy.
SO here we go:
I have had a long love affair with the dollar store. Rows and rows of discounted items that can be easily transformed into treasure really makes me excited. Well guess what, my children how just recently discovered their own love for the dollar store. My number three child is always asking me what kind of chores he can do to earn a dollar. I love it! As far as I'm concerned its a win win situation for me.
But where do you put your hard earned dollars? You make a cute "piggy" bank of course. Alright, so this isn't a piggy. I can't pull one over on you. So you wanna know
*1 Slim Fast or other can
*1 piece of scrap book paper
*mod pogde or other glue
*a little hot glue helps but is optional
*twine or ribbon for embellishment
*Exacto knife to slice hole in top of lid
Start by carefully stripping the can down to it's naked self and slice a coin drop into the lid (you do the slicing not your child, please:)).
Amy's Craft Bucket. Let me know you came by!
Thanks for having me Heidi!
Until the next time Honeybear Lane!
