Shampoo Bottle Airplanes

I saw this image on Pinterest and just love it!

Little airplanes made from shampoo bottles! Looks like they've just cut a slit on the sides to slip the wings in, and used bottle caps for jet engines.  I'm guessing the stripes are colored tape.  I can't read the original blog as it's not in English, but totally check it out.  They have a cool idea for what looks like little plaster ladybugs and other fun kid projects!

DIY Boy Valentines from Thrift Store Find!

 I just finished making valentines for my 5 year old boy and thought I'd share a photo!  I can't take any credit for the idea, as I found it here via Pinterest.  I thought it was a fun idea for a boy, being that Valentine's day can be oh-so-very girly! ;-)  I picked up a great bag of army guys at Goodwill for $1.99.  Sammy was excited that there were more than enough, so he could have a pile of them to play with too.  I printed out hearts on pink paper (would have done red but I was out), put a metal eyelet in the hole punch, and tied them to each army guy.  A fun way to give something other than candy while giving a thrift store find a new life!
