Quick tip


Have you ever been out with your kids and they get bored?  Or have you have ever been to a restaurant where they don't have crayons and fun stuff to do before the meal arrives?

Well I have solved our problem here!  I know that I am not the first to think of this, and surely I won't be the last, but recently we were walking around CostPlus and I saw these colored pencils and really, how was I supposed to say no?  They are pretty awesome afterall.

The pencils came in two sizes, large and these little travel ones.  And guess what?  They fit perfect in a soap box from Target that cost $.50.  My plan is to pull out some pages from Lucy's coloring books and fold them up inside this and then it becomes our personal activity box.  I might even add a pencil sharpener from the dollar store.

I guess the only problem I see with these is having to share them with Lucy...
