Fun Frugal Saturday

On Friday night, I left out a couple of plastic bottles for the kids. A couple weeks ago, there must have been some project at school where they made bugs out of plastic bottles because ever since, my daughter has been digging through recycling and making these paper handprints to “make a bug.” She even hand-wrote “make a bug” on her list of homework assignments for the month. 


So when we woke up at 9(!) on Saturday, the kids had made their own bugs. The mess of paper and glue and googly eyes everywhere was a small price to pay.

My daughter also got a coupon for free froyo from her school Jogathon, so I took the kids to cash in. Then we went to our second favorite library (the “red library” in the next neighborhood over is just a skosh better), the “blue library.” 

I spotted these adorable crochet test tubes in a little science exhibit, and I need to figure out how to make them. I have had a little finger knit loom since I was about 8, used for making the fingers in gloves, I think. I’ll see if I can make them. 


The kids picked out about a dozen videos, then mean mommy made them narrow it down to 4. They colored, they fought over computers, they helped me pick up my hold books. Happiest Place on Earth.
