Message Board for Teenagers

Message Board for TeenagersAs our kids have gotten old we have needed to find new ways to communicate with them to avoid the arguments that can become common with teenagers.

Repurposed Garden SeatingWe hate to see unwanted stuff going onto landfill, and why buy expensive seating when you can repurpose?

Mosaic Bug Bowling BallsI received a few old bowling balls from a friend and wanted to make something cute. Paint did not last. I decided that tile would be a lot sturdier and hold up to the elements. I love watching kids walking down the street and getting excited to see the Very Hungry Caterpillar and his friend the ladybug.

Checkerboard ArtI saw a similar project on Pinterest and was struck by how neat it looked. I thought that you could make any type of shape or even words. The possibilities are endless!
