Well, summer is here. Kids need something to do. Something fun. Something economical. Something that won't make the mom (who is helping the kids out) go ballistic. That really narrows it down, huh?
We checked our calendar, invited a few friends, and headed out to the craft store for a "free" duck tape wallet demo.
Here are the numbers we had to endure:
There was one small table.
One employee who had to keep looking at the directions to see how to make these things. Seven kids crowded around the small table.
Four kids I brought with me waiting to make a lovely (free) Father's Day gift.
One mother (me) who had about had it with 2 of the 4 children she brought (they were not my own children either...).
Fifteen minutes of torture and impatience that passed before I wised up and decided I was getting out of there before heads were going to roll.
I marched back to the duck tape aisle. Commanded the children to choose 3 colors and 3 colors only. Marched up to the front of the store. Paid for 3 colors and 3 colors only. Drove home and made our own duck tape wallets. Whew.
After I had regained my composure, I took some pictures that I thought I'd share.
Three colors and three colors only..
Measure, cut, fold, repeat...
