Magic painting, I do have more than one book, but both boys wanted to do the Backyardigans, so they shared and they shared really well.
Whilst the boys painted, I took the opportunity to tidy our craft cupboard a little. Our crafting area is the dinning room, we use this room for eating nearly every meal, so I wanted the crafts to be keep out of the way, as much as possible, but also to be as accessible as possible to the Mini’s. Our solution a corner hideaway cupboard designed for a PC.
I keep everything bar the paints in it, which I keep in an old hamper box in the garage and bring out as and when needed.
We use an old lazy susan, which was a gift from my mum and dad when we moved into our first home 14 years ago, as a turntable for the pens, pencils, crayons, scissors and play dough. We also use old dishwasher and washing powder containers that we cover to hold the pens etc.
I have a couple of hooks stick to the door to hold the boys art smocks and I am looking for a couple of old cork tiles to stick to the left hand side to make a pin board (I just wont buy a whole box for such a small area.
I love the idea of a craft cupboard. All out stuff is deposited in various places.
I really need to have a good re-organising session.
IM – the cuboard used to house the PC, but we moved it upstairs. It is so much nicer having somewhere for all the craft materials, this way I dont end up buying what we already have!!
