One of the presents Dexter got for his birthday was this little activity bucket. It was really easy to make and cost me next to nothing to do. The best part, he loves it. I don't know why, it's just a bucket for him to put things in, but kids love that kinda stuff I guess.
An empty oats container
Paint and brush
First I took a normal oats bucket and wiped it with a damp rag to get all the oat dust out of it.
Then I painted it, which I actually didn't get a picture of, but pretend there is a picture of my oat container here that is painted blue, because that is what I did. I painted it all blue.
After it was painted blue, I decided I was going to add this robot paper to the bottom for decoration (you can kinda see the blue here right? See, you don't even need your imagination.)
But, as my luck had it, the robot paper was not long enough to wrap all the way around the bucket. So I added this strip of green paper, because it makes sense right? Just go with it.
See all the fun that can be had with this bucket?
What sort of things have you made lately?
