small projects

I was looking on the other day for Christmas gift ideas for the girls.  I was browsing through their educational and learning toys and spotted some shape bean bags for $20 and thought that was such a crazy price.  Especially since I have a lot of fabric laying right behind me and some scissors and know how to cut out various shapes.  A trip to the store for $1.50 bag of beans and we are set.

This is what was came of it.

The girls really like them.  I bought some buckets and thought we could make a game out of it.  Some of the shapes were super simple to make and I think I will make some more for them.  

I also converted this little hallway in the front of our house into a little area for the girls to play in.  Bella is always messing around in it.  It used to house Jorge's bike, some tools and other misc. items.

It has been a hit.  This morning the first thing Bella did was come and ask me to turn on the light to her "
new room".  The light switch is oddly located outside.

I think we will play a game of shape bean bag now.
