We went to our local Museum today, with the intention of not spending any money, but then I saw this rag rug making kit
Made by this company.
I have lots of balls of fabric scraps
and this looks easy enough for the kids to do, I'm hoping it will keep them quite for 5 minutes which will more than justify the money spent. ( We are 6 weeks into the 8 week holiday, and there is some SERIOUS fighting going on between them, I can tell you)
I think this is going to be fun
I like the back too
In fact I may just keep it for myself and lock them in a cupboard after all.
