garden stakes

I have the kids home for two weeks added to the dark grey weather equals serious wall climbing. We also had a series of very, VERY expensive household emergencies this last month. So I devised this inexpensive way to add a little winter color and entertain the kids.

I bought a multi-pack of sculpy with a 40% off coupon for the bodies and used take-out chopsticks for the stakes. I think you could also bake salt dough, paint and seal it, but this was more colorful and rewarding for the kids.

I'm really excited with what the kids came up with and they want to give them to their father for Christmas.
