Tuesday Tips Cooking with Kids and More! “Why didn’t I think of that?”

This is the sixth in the Series: WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT?

I am not the most craft oriented person – in fact, I used to dread arts and crafts days at school and am not the grandma who has a multiple of crafts around for children to play with. I would much rather cook, make up stories, create music and sound and song. Fortunately creativity comes in different ways – and someone – it came to me as ‘anonymous’ who is clearly good at arts and crafts, came up with some Ideas to Make Life Easier that are so simple and yet so brilliant. It is like that isn’t it though? The most brilliant ideas are the simple ones – the ones to which you have to exclaim – why didn’t I think of that?!  I  guarantee you’ll be uttering those words more than once at these ingenious little tips, tricks and ideas that solve everyday problems. I have passed them on every Tuesday for the past few weeks so be sure to go back into the blog archives if you missed any. There will be one more after this! And if you have your own tip that makes life easier, please do put it into the comment section at the bottom of my blog, so that I can publish it and share it with everyone! As I mentioned – this is not my best thing – so I am relying on the collective intelligence of those who are ever so much better at this kind of thing than I am! Again don’t forget to put your comments in for us ‘craft-challenged’ folks – any more tips you can share will be greatly appreciated!
