Summer Crayons

Today we made sea shell crayons out of reclycled crayons. Because we didn't have enough crayons of our own we asked the neighbors if they had any broken crayons they wanted to discard.

They were so easy and fun to make:)

Saving with a New Approach

I have a real weakness for magazines, but I have been trying not to pay full price for them. I use to not be able to go into a store without going down the magazine aisle. Now I would rather put my money to better things. However, I have not done without plenty of current magazines. Our library has a place where the Friends of the Library sell old books and magazines. Adult books vary in cost but childrens books and magazines are 25 cents. Most of the time I get magazines the same month they are in the store. Here is an example of a few that I got on our weekly library visit.
