A Super Easy Kid’s Craft AND…The New Patio Area at the Co-op!

This craft tutorial is in honor of a special someone who just turned 1 last week…and according to mama, this special someone now likes to play with magnets! I looked all over for fun kid-themed magnets for a birthday gift and couldn’t find any, so I said screw it – I’m makin’ em! They came out cute so I thought I’d share…because I think they would be fun to make with kids too!

Here’s whatcha need:

Magnets found in the office supply isle at TARGET…my most favorite store evvver! They are all different sizes and colors, and come like 30 to a pack or something – very economical!

Sharpie Paint Markers, which come in all kinds of colors, widths, finishes…you pick!

And then…draw!

These would be great for the kids to personalize and give as gifts or just a fun craft project in general!

In other news, I stopped by the co-op yesterday and saw the completed patio space outside the entrance way…how cute is this? We plan on putting gardening stuff out there, along with vintage, wood, rod-iron and wicker patio furniture. It also makes a nice place to enjoy a cup of coffee and/or food during one of our events!

I personally don’t have anything to display out in this area, but that won’t stop me from sitting out there and enjoying a little sunshine! πŸ™‚ I really need to get some new stuff in my booth…time to change it up. I have a 10% off sale going on right now to try to clear out some space…hope it works!

Hope everyone’s summer is going well so far…it’s been gorgeous here the last few days! I love Upstate NY in the summer time! Got some really neat finds to share in my next post from my step-dad’s 1860 farm house that he is taking down – dismantling board by board to re-use the wood and possible sell some of the original structural units. It’s soooo cool…I’ll share and post some pix soon! Have a great day! πŸ™‚
