Oh What Fun

Recently while in our local Wal-Mart, one of the CSRs told us that the 4 baskets in the front, everything in them was $1.00, no matter what they were marked.
And if you know me, you know there is nothing I like better than a bargain...
So I sorted through and found 2 hand towels, nice ones, some magic markers, 8 in a package, and several other things...Including 2  
building kits.  
They were regular about $10.00, and I knew the grandkids would be here during the summer, needing something to work on, so I grabbed them.

Skylar asked this morning, could we put the birdhouse together, and Stephen could help us.
I said sure, and after making a pattern of all the pieces, just in case we wanted to make more of them,
 we started.
Stephen found something more interesting, in about 10 minutes, but Skylar
kept working.  I didn't get pictures of it before or as we were putting it together,
 but here is just before she started painting it.

her choices of colors

and no, she isn't showing her finger, lol, shes showing me the blue
as she started painting.

Working away, to get it just as she wants it.
Finished and dry.

And we already have a renter.

See her checking out the inside.

And sitting on the chimney singing her heart out.

Come back another day to see if there are eggs inside.
Also, we have a treasure chest to do, later on.

Speaking of eggs, the lizard eggs are hatched, and all
are gone, I checked late yesterday afternoon and
nothing there anymore.  I sure wanted photos of them, but
it didn't happen.

What fun, Jettie! I can't believe how grown up Skylar is!!! When did THAT happen? She is like our Lulu- always loving to be working on some project. It is so good for them though. I see she takes after you and Stephen is a typical male already- xo Diana

I just love digging for dollar stuff and anything that keeps the kids busy while doing something that's fun is worth the dig. Glad you had fun with them working on the cheap projects.
Glad the baby lizards are gone.
