Thrifty Tip Thursday!

Hello one and all, and Welcome to Thrifty Tip Thursday; where Thursday is your Thrifty Tipping Day! Every day here is Thrifty, but this is a wonderful day to share with everyone your Thrifty Saving Ways! Also, I chose Thursdays, because it starts with "T" and is closer to the weekend! Made sense to me! :-) (Okay, in a silly mood!)

My Thrifty Tip for this Thursday is:
Don't throw out your child's old board books or picture books, or any books for that matter, even if pages are ripped out, etc... I, personally, love to use those with my students for Art Projects (more specifically Collages). The kids are excited because it is wierd for them to use a book versus a Magazine all the time to collage with. The can cut out words, and some pictures. Or, HEY, ALTER That book!!! Leave it intact and simply "gesso" the pages and have your child (OR YOU) get crafty and creative and do some paintings, collages, etc...on those pages! How neat would that be? Just an idea!

That is a fabulous idea! We have fifty million (or so) board books in various states of gummed-to-death-ness but I was loathe to throw them out--vindication! :)
