Making a Mosquito Trap

This one I really want to try when we have our get-together next month. I get a lot of mosquitoes in my backyard - and don't like to use chemicals or sprays.

But since I don't drink pop, I will have to find some bottles first! It would be great if this works!!


No time to make this? Check out Amazon's Mosquito Trap Night Light - cheap enough to grab one for every room of your house!

My boys loved making playhouses!

We always had blankets over tables and chairs, cardboard boxes make into play houses in the living room, blanket tents pinned to the clothesline.

Once we had a whole village made out of cardboard boxes in our backyard!

This little playhouse looks so cute!

Have you ever wanted to make a quiet book for your little ones?

Julia has collected a wonderful assortment of ideas on how to make them, and subject ideas - on her Pinterest account.

My youngest was obsessed with making cities and roads when he was a little boy - I wish I had thought of this!

No sewing is required!

With one pair of jeans she made two long roads, two shorter roads, two curved roads, and a four way intersection piece.

NOTE - If any of the above links are not working or the freebies or coupons no longer available, please post a blog comment below and I'll edit it!

When the site asks where you heard about them, say friend/family, not a freebie site. Right-clicking and copying the link location and pasting it in a new browser, rather than clicking the link can help too. Sometimes they won't send if they know you came from a freebie site.
