This is a simple and fun decoration for your laundry room/area!! It's very easy to make and turned out super cute!! :) Here's how I did it:

Item's Needed:
1- board...any size you want
Paint Brush
Vinyl Wording or Stencil
1- med. clothespin
Sanding Block
Step 1: Take your board and paint it...mine is a bright Turquoise!!

Step 2: After it has dried really well take your sanding block and sand your edges down to give it
the weathered look.
Step 3: After sanding take your stamp pad (if your cheap like me :) ) or your distressing ink and ink the sides of the board a bit!
Step 4: Next take your lettering or stencils and place them all on the board. The saying for this board is "Laundry, Drop your Drawers here!"
All put on!
Step 5: Take your twine and clothespin and tie it around the bottom/side/or top of the board whatever you choose! (I didn't leave the arrow on the board...I decided I didn't like it!!)
Last hang it up and stand back and Enjoy!! :)

Boredom Buster Jar...

I realize that we are already 1 month into summer but this is a super fun idea that my kiddos love!! Alot of times during the summer you get the "Im Bored" "I don't have anything to do" I came up with about 75 fun things/simple things that kiddos can do. Here is how I did it:

{Boredom Buster Jar}
Item's Needed:
1 med/lg. plastic rubbermaid container or bowl
75-100: Summer Activities or "things to do"
"Boredom Buster" in Vinyl or you can write it on
Cute Scraps of paper
(Not Pic.) Pinto Beans
Step 1: Take your Container/bowl and cover it with your cute scraps of paper
Step 2: Apply your "Boredom Buster" lettering to the front of the jar
Step 3: Take your "activities" and cut them into strips. (I used Microsoft to type them in and then just printed them out)
Some ex:
"Go to the Library"
"Make a Lemonade stand"
"Make a picture out of rice/beans/ lentils"
"Write a story"
"Go to get ice cream"
Step 4: Fold all your strips and throw them into the container
with the pinto beans ( I alternated Beans/some strips/beans...etc.)
Step 5: Add your ribbon to the bottom of the jar/container and store it on a shelf or on top of your refrigerator!!
