Am I glad I did not throw our old phone books away! Angry Chicken (angrychicken.typepad.com) just found a new use for them and I think it’s genius!
When you have a nine and six year old at home, paper and glue become indispensable household items. Cutting, drawing, and gluing become everyday routine – but not without casualties. My 6 year old gets too zealous gluing it almost always runs through. I would place newspapers but it’s a chore to clean up after. Well I always thought it’s either that or we risk ruining a new book or, worse, the carpet. Now, I simply slip an old phone book under whatever he is working on. Even if glue seeps through – no worries! Just turn the page and you have a fresh page.
