Simple Homemaking Tips

Homemaking Tip of the Day:
  • Need a kids table, but don't have the money? Check your attic or the side of the road for an adult size wood table. Just cutting down the legs, makes a child size table in a snap!

  • Do you homeschool and wish you had a large chalkboard? Do you have artists that never have enough paper for all of their creations? Well, any door or wall can become a chalkboard with the help of chalkboard paint from the paint store or your local Home Depot. A sponge makes a handy-dandy eraser without money being spent. Most local dollar stores also carry many varieties of chalk for your chalkboard needs.

  • want a place to keep the chalk? Check that Home Depot, they have moldings that can be turned into a chalk holder!

God knew what he was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love him along the same lines as the life of his Son. The Son stands first in the line of humanity restored. We see the original and intended shape of our lives in him. ROMANS 8:29

Check with your local school division to see if they have chalk boards they want get rid of. Many schools are changing to or have changed to white boards & may be just too happy for you to take the chalk boards off their hands. Storage space is always at a premium in schools.
