Use Those Fallen Leaves for This Cute Craft!

Posted on October 28th, 2017 by Uncategorized

Sweet child, boy, applying leaves using glue while doing arts

Oh what a joy autumn is. I mean, I love the pumpkin spice lattes and boots and sweaters and football, but I don’t like raking leaves. We had a bad wind storm today, so when I pulled up to my house I was greeted with an obscene amount of leaves covering my driveway and front yard. The wind practically wiped my trees bare!

In order to look at the bright side of things, I started to research fun projects that could be done with the fallen leaves, and figured that you could make some creative art pieces pretty easily! All you’d really need to do is…

1. Gather your supplies (paper, markers, glue, leaves)
2. Draw part of an image (for example, a perch for a bird )
3. Glue the leaves down to complete the image (like making the bird out of various leaves)!

For something so simple, I find this craft to be so dang cute! You don’t need to make a trip to the craft store as any piece of paper and pen or markers will do. Plus, it’s bound to keep the kiddos busy for a while, and you have a handful of leaves you now no longer need to rake! Win win. 😀


Do-It-Yourself Sprinkler

Posted on May 7th, 2012 by Discount Debbie

We at Thrifty Divas love do-it-yourself items. We also love Pinterest for all the wonderful ideas. Here is one I found that I made for my kids. Although it’s still a little cold in our neck of the woods, my kids still loved it! And it’s so easy!

All you need is a 2 liter soda bottle, a water hose and a male to male adapter from the hardware store.
Then just poke holes in the bottom of the bottle, screw the hose into it and throw it over a tree branch. Then watch the fun!
I absolutely LOVE this and your kids could even get involved in making it.

This whole project will cost around $5. You definitely can’t buy a sprinkler for that much and this is way more fun!
