Another day, another dollar (store project). I hadn’t intended to bring you another dollar store project so soon, but something shocking happened. I was scheduled to babysit this weekend for some school-age children. Because I never show up empty-handed I brought all my crafting supplies along with me, only to find out that they didn’t want to craft with me! GASP! It was life-changing. This just doesn’t happen to me! I was all sorts of out of whack. I was going to have to rely on a super-fun personality? I mean, come on, that can’t compare with my crafts now can it?
Contrary to my beliefs, apparently I am super-fun. To give myself some credit, the children woke up the next day and asked if I could come back every day. So there’s that. I’ll take what I can get. Even if it’s only three and five year olds who want to hang out with me. At least it’s not just my husband and my cat.
To get back on track, I had purchased this pack of glitter foam hearts from the Dollar Tree to make a project with the kiddos. I didn’t know what else to do with them, so I made some fun coasters for Valentine’s Day. Just glued three together (they’re thin), and covered each side in Mod Podge (mandatory unless you want your house covered in glitter – trust me, it never goes away at my place).
These even make a cute gift if you add a little ribbon. Everyone loves a handmade craft, don’t they? I bet even my new kid friends would love them. 😉
