Garage Sale, Day 1

Today is the first day of our garage sale, so I’m keeping it simple on the blog. Earlier this week, the boys and I conjured up a great bit of summer fun with duct tape, a contractor trash bag and water.

Take a look at the Water Blob we made and let me know if you try this yourself. It was hours of fun using inexpensive materials we already had around the house. The fun was extended by the boys hovering over the computer creating mash-ups with the video segments I’d filmed. Best deal of the summer so far.

Stop by the garage sale if you’re a local. You’ll get the blog reader discount!

    That’s one tough blob!!! What a GREAT idea! Often, I think we forget that kids really are satisfied with the little things. 🙂

    Hmmm…so what if you taped a bunch of bags together and put a hose on it…like a blob slip and slide? lol

    Awesome! I love how boys can be entertained by just about NOTHING yet will still yell, “BUT I’M BORED!!!” 🙂 We did the “nuke a bar of Ivory soap” trick (also learned from Pinterest!) last night! Think I’ll post about it now!
