Works-For-Me: Keeping Art Contained

paint handsYou know those projects that kids love to do, the ones with sequins and buttons and little pieces of things and lots of glue? If you’re cringing already, this tip is for you.

We recently discovered Discount School Supply‘s “Brawny Tough Plastic Art Trays,” in small and large. We have the smaller ones, and they work well for small projects. The kids like them because they don’t have to chase their little rolling art stuff all over the place, and because it gives them a little territory of their own. art trayI like them because it means spills are contained and arguments are minimized. The small ones are great, but if you want to use full-sized construction paper, I’d suggest getting the large ones.

This post is part of Rocks In My Dryer’s Works-For-Me Wednesdays. Check out the party!

    Wow, those look great! Unfortunately, my kids have a mom who is freaky about those types of messes. These would even be good as placemats, wouldn’t they?

    I’m so excited!

My blog. Herein read entries related to who and what is important to me. Feel free to leave comments. I feel free to delete them if I don't like them. So there. By reading about my life, readers should expect to begin to see their own lives as increasingly more organized and sophisticated, their homes cleaner and neater.

Why This Blog?

Well, mostly this is for my family to see pictures and read anecdotes about the kids. It's also a venue for telling the story of my struggles and victories in my life as a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a teacher. Occasionally I toss in some weird or touching item that I've found.

What’s Christianity All About?

The Gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. [as said by John Piper]
