How I Spent Just $2.47 and Kept Kids Entertained for Hours

On a whim, I bought this roll of brown paper in the paint section of Home Depot for $2.47.

I rolled out several feet of paper for the kids to draw and color on. And guess what?  They did! For like TWO HOURS. It was new and different, and they loved it!Blog2 and wm

I like this paper better than the brown Kraft wrapping paper (you know, like shipping paper?) because it’s thinner and the roll is only 9 inches wide.

This is nothin’.  We’ve got 165 feet of artistic entertainment left to go.  I’m just sayin’.
best. purchase. ever.
Have a great day!
