WFMW: Knit Wits


I stumbled across this in Family Fun - a magazine that I am COMPLETELY addicted to now. Despite its incessant advertising about Disney (which owns the magazine), I find myself monthly ripping out 3-13 pages of ideas to try and/or save for the future. While not all of them were successful, all were fun. But, this one was a REALLY good hit just before Cmas.

This "knit-wit" idea requires only supplies that I gathered at the local Dollar General and cost me less than $5...knit gloves, rubber balls, and rice. I used leftover buttons instead of the pom-poms they suggested. But, with Viking #1 "supervising", I quickly sewed up two new "dollies" that have been dragged around the house, taken out for errands, and taken to Grandma's house more than any toy she received at Cmas! LOL Wouldn't it figure! LOL


Go to Shannon's site for more WFMW ideas!

I can not see the picture, but I have to second the emotion about Family Fun. I subscribed years ago when I ran an after school program and each and every month was a treasure trove. I have used some of the ideas year after year. A subscription is a wonderful gift.
