$3 Chair – Garage Sale Upcycle Project

Our family loves garage sales. You can get really good deals on high quality items, if you know how to spot them. During our town’s giant neighborhood wide garage sale, we found a cool little wooden children’s chair that was perfect for my daughter. It was just a little beat up, with the original finish peeling. However, it’s made of solid wood, and it folds up. The seller had a $3 sticker on it. Sold!

Now that warm weather has finally arrived, my daughter and I fixed up the chair for her, making it not only a great DIY project but a father-daughter one to boot. Also, she was able to do most of it hands on, truly making it her own.

Leftover Easter Peep Bunnies Spring Picture: Art Project

Easter is over. You have a basket of empty plastic eggs and a mountain of Easter grass that you’re starting to pack up for its annual snooze in the garage or basement. You also have about 4,000 peeps laying around, and you know that it’d be wrong to let your kid eat them all. If you’re like me, you don’t like the thought of throwing away food, even the sugary food that’s like an edible can of soda, without it getting some kind of use. So, is there anything we can do with this sugary Easter candy that makes it into your house every Spring?

Turn it into a fun art project!!!! Not only is it a fun way to create art with your kid, you won’t be tempted to eat a marshmallow that’s covered in glue and paint…too much.
