Bedside Pockets

13051709_10154144566773234_1497203973246341073_nI think I need these for the side of every bed in the house. How convenient it would be to hold remotes, lotion, book, wrapped snacks etc. A child would love to keep all of those special little items in their grasp – especially ghost spray (a small spray bottle tht has a magical element that keeps monsters away). I still want one myself. Wish I knew how to make one.

Milk Jug Snowman Outside Decoration

76431_477678165608782_426290372_nThis is so simple of an idea and you can get your child involved to help get a kick start to the holiday festivities. Thoroughly clean milk/orange juice container by letting soak overnight with water and about two tablespoons of bleach. Rinse and dry. While you are waiting for this use old buttons or paper cutouts for mouth, nose and eyes. Get creative and give the snowman earmuffs, eyeglasses or whatever other creative add-on you can give to provide your snowman with a personality. For the lights: If making three or more like in the picture use a string of lights that is 150 lights. Puncture a hole in the back of the jug and push lights until you have about forty in each jug. This will provide room for the snowman to be placed close but as you desire. You can also use a little sand or some rocks in the jug before you put the lights in them to hold them securely if wind should arise.
