Manic Monday

Oh SO MUCH to share with everyone.  I'm working on all sorts of blog posts and trying to maintain sanity in the meantime at home.  It is summer break you know but that by no means that we go on a break.  LOL.  Tons going on as usual.  So, will be promising to do at least two to three blog posts a night simply as a way to catch up and more for me than anything.  I hate half started stuff and it is half started.  One of those pet peeves of mine.  So, here is the first of 3 today.  Simply Manic Monday post but you'll see why shortly how busy we have been.

  1. Weighted blankets can be expensive, but if you know how to sew, you can make your own. Just fill squares of fabric with small polybeads (10% total of the body weight of the child you want to use the blanket distributed throughout the blanket - in other words, a 30 pound child should have a 3 pound blanket) and then sew the squares (or pockets) together. You can machine wash this and air dry.
