A couple years ago, I was inspired to create a rocket ship using only a diaper box, some recycling materials, and $5.00-or-less monetary goal. I ended up spending $3.98 and that rocket ship lasted two years until we couldn’t justify moving it cross-country. But winters in Kansas are looonnng and I might have to resurrect this craft for some fun indoor play.
Have you ever hosted a lemonade stand? I never did as a child, but always wanted to. We live in a family-friendly neighborhood with great visibility. I decided it would be a fun afternoon activity to do with my son while my daughter napped.
My daughter loves to play trains with her older brother. When it came time to transition her room from nursery to toddler, I wanted a train table or train set that was cute enough to go in her room. After checking around, I decided the least expensive option was to make my own.
