Very, Very High Standards

I'm not anti-Pinterest, I'm just Pinterest-disabled.

But every once in a while, I come across a Pinterest idea that meets all of my exacting requirements for a craft.

A KID craft, that is. I don't do crafts by myself. I take naps by myself.

The exacting requirements are as follows:
  1. Requires no errands. Meaning, I have all the supplies in the house. And can find them.
  2. Costs zero dollars. Not $5. Not $1. Zeroooooo.
  3. Can be completed in 10-15 minutes or less, thereby matching the attention span of my children.
  4. Requires no prep. Meaning, I don't have to do ANYTHING ahead of time. No preparing of materials, no mixing, no smacking my kids away from the table while I JUST TRY TO GET YOUR STUPID CRAFT READY FOR YOU, GEEZ.
  5. Requires absolutely no skill, talent, or crafty-type knowledge. Because I have none. None. (Refer back to my thoughts on the zeroooooo.)
Enter, the winning Pinterest craft of the season:

The Bedroom Door Snowman

He met all of my requirements. 

I love him.

Henry loves him. Maggie loves him.

10 points for Pinterest.

The End.

    you know what's cheaper. not changing your dang paint pillows.
