All four of them made re-usable bags from old T-shirts and duct tape. Very cute and very handy. We are giving them out as gifts for friends with birthdays also and that saves some dough as well as being green. I saw the following video and got the idea. The duct tape makes the bag strong and you can put wet bathing suits in the bag as well. Very handy.
The girls also made pillows out of T-shirts, that were no-sew, just tying knots. Very easy and helped Elle especially learn how to tie good knots.
Meg printed out her blog to enter and took her iPad to show the judge her live blog. Mita also made wallet out of duct tape.
My favorite was Enu’s Puppy Chow project. She made chex mix puppy chow and put it in a dog bowl and we ate it as a snack when we toured the local Animal Shelter and then gave the staff the snack and the bowl along with our other donations. As the fair doesn’t let you take real food, she made a poster of her making the chow. She then made some more puppy chow for the judge to taste.
Needless to say, my talented girls are the owners of several new blue ribbons and I am done with crafts for a while. Especially after our Angry Birds game that we also made this week!
