Tin Games

There's a new release at Little Miss Muffet Stamps today and among them you'll find a few new games too.  These were designed to fit in an Altoid's tin but they can be printed much larger too.  The one featured in the tin is Gummyland which is similar to the Candyland kid's game.  Players advance down the trail to get the hot air balloon. 

The tin games can be loose inside the tin or they can be glued to the outside or the lid of a tin.  This next game is Slides and Ladders.  It's plain to see this was inspired by the Chutes and Ladders kid's game.  However, instead of it based on good/bad behavior, this elephants are just having fun. 

This last game is Little Houses.  It's sort of a combination of Sorry and Trouble.  Players start in the field and move around the board to get home.  But watch out . . . you could be trading places with your opponent which might set you back farther.

Monster Book of Monsters

I've been up to more crafting lately than coloring.  These are the two projects that my daughter did at her latest book club.  The idea for the wands came from Give Peas a Chance blog.  I found a variety of ideas for the Monster Book of Monsters post-it note cover from Pinterest.  All the girls at the book club had a great time making them!

I've had a little fun sewing with my Mom lately.  I created a cloth tray that holds my colored images that are ready to be used.  It's reversible too!  Then I also created a pencil pouch to hold some loose metallic pencils I had my desk.  that's not reversible - bummer.  But both help me get my desk a little more organized. So that's a bonus!
