Arts and Crafts

Arts and Crafts

I'm not very artistic. I'm still trying to figure this whole blog thing out, but it's been fun. I'm always trying to come up with something to do. I think it's very important to keep yourself busy and have some sort of hobby. It can be very comforting and soothing. It's also very distracting to every day life. It drives you away from the stress' that you deal with daily. I can't afford much, so making things that are inexpensive are always a plus. So once in a while I'll post things up that I've done myself or with the kids. Most importantly...on a budget!! Enjoy!!

Valentine's Day Goodie Bags
Shopping List (These are estimates of what I paid)
30 mini goodie bags $1.00
Bag of Hershey Kisses $3.00
Bag of Mini Air Heads $3.00
Bag of Large Valentine's Smarties $3.00
Small package of 20 mini bubbles $2.00
Valentine's Day Cards $2.00
2 boxes of Little Debbies Brownies with Chocolate chips $6.00 (24 total individually packed brownies)
Total $20-$25 for 20 students (I still have a bunch of goodies left over)

You can make it cheaper if you purchase from your local 99 cent store, have coupons, or buy from sales. I went a little over board due to the time contraints. Like I said...nothing special..just affordable and practical.

The Mess!!
