****************Now, back to those SPOOLS!
A quick bucket was made. I think I can make buckets with my eyes closed by now! It's bigger than it looks... so. many. spools. The ideas and stories in the comment section of the first spool post were incredible. Definitely worth checking into. My favorite idea was tried immediately: bath-time bubble blower.
My grandmother used wooden spools to get us kids to actually get clean in the bathtub. If you rub soap on yourself, say your leg, then rub the end of a spool on your soapy leg you can blow bubbles.
It was such a hit, that I feared my daughter would never return from the prune she turned into! Now we keep a little bowl of spools on the ledge above the tub. Here are some more ideas for us to all enjoy from various spots around the web:
- peg rack
- kid craft round-up
- Valentine that would be sweet for any time of year
- photo holders
- spool button stamps
- wooden spool baby toy
- toy fishing pole
