Over Memorial Day weekend, I put together a couple of magic wallets for the boys. As a kid, I remember being fascinated at the mysterious way a piece of paper would transfer to the other side of the wallet upon opening it back up.
I found my instructions for the wallet at Mini Eco. Our only modification was covering the backside with a few strips of duct tape.
And speaking of fun and easy projects, the folks over at Kiwi Crate (we did a crate review earlier this year) sent over a couple of coupon codes, both good until June 3rd!

Our cardboard robots may be a little funny-looking but the boys had a blast putting them together! I cut out some strips and squares from cardboard boxes, then stacked the pieces together to drill holes through, added some duct-tape robot features (I used Mer’s method to easily cut out duct-tape shapes), and let the kids go at it with some metal brad fasteners (make sure you get the long kind, about 1/2″).

If you love working with felt and are comfortable with sewing (or hand-stitching at a minimum) you would be excited to thumb through these fabulous projects with step-by-step instructions. Just last night, I put together an easy geometric felt bunting for the boys’ room and will be tackling the modern table runner above next!
