Linus Project

A couple weeks before Thanksgiving I found these fleece blankets on sale at Albertson's for $3. "What a great project for 10 days off school" I thought. To help beat the "I'm bored I think I'll go fight with my sibling" urges.

It proved to be a good project for them and kept them busy without much complaining.
Even Abby cut her own fleece, although I had to tie it

Now they each have their own distinct blanket. No more pulling their bedspreads off the bed and leaving them in the bonus room, and no denying the blanket is theirs, or fighting for a blanket (one can dream can't they?)

Abbys is my favorite! I love the zebra print. Looks like fun, good thinking taking pictures. I always forget.

Way cool. I wonder if they have anymore. We have a similar problem that would be nicely solved this way.

What a great idea! And nice to hear that my children aren't the only ones that do the fighting just for something to do sometimes! ;)
