I’m sure we all love Pinterest, but sometimes those amazing craft ideas are a little intense. I’m not sure that running out to three different stores to grab supplies was really worth the 15 minutes of fun we got from making a 7-layer density column. And the shock that comes from realizing that density is a concept out of the reach of most toddlers was pretty entertaining for me as well. If you’re looking to roll back the crafting to simpler times, when paper bags made awesome puppets, you might want to check out Amazon’s deal on the well-reviewed Alex Toys My Giant Busy Box. Originally $44, it’s on sale today for just $25 42% off! All the fun, none of the fuss!
And this pretty storage bin on the right caught my eye as I was browsing Amazon today, that seemed quite similar to one I had just seen in a Pottery Barn catalog for $99. (In fact, this one is bigger, and I think prettier!) It has an original price of $99 at Amazon, but the pink color is on sale today for $67, $33 off! There’s an espresso version as well for $70, a bright blue for $67, a bright red for $70, and a white version for $76. They’re stackable too!
