One Saturday morning a few weeks ago, we were at the thrift shop looking for a desk I could refinish for the eldest hooligan’s room. Not only did we find a perfect desk (for less than $20), the hooligans found butterfly nets at the bargain price of $1.49 each.
We had our doubts about long sticks in their grasp, but took a chance. They were entertained for hours upon hours, day after day. Until eventually they whacked each other with the net part and they broke, of course. I’m pretty sure we got our money’s worth first, though. Oh, and if you were worried, no butterflies were harmed or really even in danger of being caught during this adventure.
Here’s a scrapbook page I made of the fun they had.
And these are the photos I used. The page is designed to be printed in 8×8 or 12×12 format, which can be done very inexpensively at Costco. Just in case you were interested in digital scrapbooking. If you’d like more info on it, check out my post from November about digital scrapbooking.
