for the kids


My husband's latest project has been these miniature guitars for the kids.  They are exactly half the length of my full size there.  There are a few tweaks that he would make on future tries, but I think for his first go at an instrument with no professional guidance, these things are pretty dang neat.  You'll notice they only have four strings, so yeah, we sort of tuned them akin to a ukelele.  But please don't be mistaken... these are guitars.

This summer I'm hoping he'll be able to make me a real guitar.  Oh I just can't wait!  I'm just giddy with the thoughts of wood-burning and painting my own guitar!

And sometin' else I was so excited to to share were these small trays I found at a thrift store.  There were six available that all matched and like a dummy I only purchased four.  What was I thinking?  I'm hoping next time I go back that I'll be able to still find the last two.  Not only do the kids think they're neat but I can't tell you how much easier it is to think up a little meal to fit these little compartments.  Almost like it's begging for a member of each food group to fill it up.


What's a trick you got going for coming up with kid's meal plans?  Please share.

Thanks for stopping by!
