Today I got in a fight. With the recycling bin.
So, I took out all the large boxes, cut them up, & put them in a low drawer in the craft area. Now when the kids want to paint, instead of me having to rip paper from a new notebook & then having them put so much paint on the paper that it rips, all they have to do is grab a piece of rectangle cardboard from the drawer! So simple-so fun- and LOOK! so beautiful, too.
