Do you remember this craft posted by the very talented Merrilee on Mer Mag?
The minute I saw it I fell in love! Not only is it beautiful, but so creative and fun. Hours of creative endeavors to be had by her and her sweet boys. Genius. I so badly want to do this craft one day. But for now, I'm using what we already have lying around the house. This is where the popsicle sticks come in and those freebie magnets you get in the mail all the time. My oldest and I painted the popsicle sticks one afternoon while my youngest was napping.
Last week while both boys were napping, I cut up some magnets and hot-glued them to the popsicle sticks.
Once the boys were awake, I told them to check out the fridge because Mommy had mad them something. The fun, learning and laughter began!

The art that they created was actually really pretty and inspiring.
Zero dollars spent. Hours of fun. Less waste in the trash. Sticks to the fridge so no storage is needed. This craft project was a total home run! Success feels pretty good. xo
