Behold: The Pom Pom Shooters
Cups + Balloons + Pom Poms + Milk Carton + shoe box + newspaper comics + tape + foil + cereal box + paint
The pom poms I actually got yesterday at Michael's during their 90% off sale (about a penny a piece for the 15 of them).
It was fun to see him and his friend leave their cake and ice cream to play.
Also, another fun and frugal experience was cutting my husband's hair for the first time. After a year of sending my husband to his parents' place to ask his mom to cut his hair, I got the hint that his mom was done cutting it after they got us a set for Christmas. No bald spots or anything :) I can't imagine spending $ on hair cuts. We always grew up with my mom doing ours-her dad was a barber. I also am growing my hair out to sell it anyway. I've donated it a few times before, but decided this time to try selling it (people buy hair for wigs and extensions) and then I can have money to both help with bills and donate to a cause of my choice :)
