Of course you do because you read the title of this post. It is a roll of newsprint. We bought it for about $10 when the boys were little from our local newspaper office and as you can see we still have TONS left. I LOVE this paper because we can use it for so many things like welcome home banners, or filler in boxes we are mailing, or to lay down for messy craft projects or for table coverings at meals.
Ashley wanted a project so I rolled it out onto the table to have her decorate it for dinner.
In years past I would haul out the big roll and let the kids go to town decorating as I would make dinner. It would entertain them and then entertain us as we looked at the artwork while we ate. Today Ashley asked if I would make some pictures with her. I thought that it would be fun to personalize each place setting and then fill in with games.
I had little doodling games like -
- Tic Tac Toe
- Mad Libs
- Finish the Face, Monster, Flowers in the Vase
- Family Thumb War Ring with place to write the winners
- Word Game Ideas
- Finish the Sentence
The best part was that the newsprint kept my table clean from the dinner mess!
