If your kids are like mine, and they're constantly asking you to drape blankets over chairs in the middle of the living room, maybe it's time to make a little space they can play in for hours.
Most of my favorite craft projects come from turning recyclables into little treasures. Enter toilet paper rolls. There are so many fun things you can do with them.
I can't avoid them any longer; my kids want to participate in after-school activities which leaves little time for anything but sleeping.
