Fun Projects

 School ends in two days and I have been in a frenzy to get some projects done.  Marshmallow treats for the school staff.  This is my go to treat that is so easy and quick to make.  And very yummy as well.

These are chalkboard trays that I saw on Pinterest.  I bought the plastic silver trays at the Dollar Tree and I already had the paint.  $1 per tray and this project was a win win for me.  Note if you if plan to do this I needed three coats of paint and the paint would not stick to the edges of the tray for some reason.  Perhaps if you sanded the tray first you might have more success.
 Door attire is another one of my favorite things.  I put this hanging basket together after a trip to Joann's.  This has been on my door all Spring but I will have to change things come summer.
 Another use for the chalkboard trays.  I think this one will have to wait for colder weather as the silver tray is a bit too formal for summer weather.
 Now this project I have been saving for a while.  This is an old rain coat that ripped.  I turned it into a wet bag for bathing suits.  My boys are going to be doing a lot of swimming this summer and I hate getting a wet backpack back at the end of the day.  So I sewed this into a bag and added a zipper.  Perfect for summer days.

It remains to be seen if I can actually get the boys to use it.
