So before you throw out those catalogs or junk mail envelopes(great for the kids to use when they play office or school), stop and think of something, anything that your children might enjoy doing with them first, then recycle them;))

How many flower catalogs do you get in a day?
We get anywhere from 2-3 flower catalogs a day, no kidding. I recycle old newspapers and magazines as soon as they are read but the flowers are sooo pretty, I thought....there has to be something that we can do with these. Lightbulb moment.....I gather the girls, some scissors, construction paper, glue sticks, and catalogs and declare that we are going to design our very own gardens!! It was fun to see what flower really caught the eye of my girls and how they would arrange them on their paper. Notice that Bella put a house in her garden with a welcome sign;) I even cut out some of the flower pages in the shape of hearts and they made very elegant looking Valentines, I will save them for next year.
