Cut up a bar of soap to use at the gym.

My family recently joined the ymca. The kids adore swimming but I hate sending  an entire bar of soap with my 7 year old into the locker room. We were losing soap and I know he would drop it so that it would gather all the yucky floor germs. Now I just cut up a bar and add a little chunk to a zip lock, and go. When we get home I open the zip lock and let the soap dry for another use. These generally give us 2 or 3 trips to the gym. Each bar of soap can easily be cut up into 12 or so chuncks

Let the kids get into you crafting supplies from time to time. This sweet pile of monsters is the result of me saying yes. My seven year old made all of his and my 3 year old helped me make his. They had fun and got some time with mama. All it cost me was a bit of my yarn and the googly eyes that we got at a dollar  store.
