Buckets of Fun


The weather is warming up which means we will be spending time in the sandbox and water table very soon.  I wanted to get Wynn and a little friend some new toys for their activities outside this year.  I bought some items from the Dollar Tree and Target dollar spot to fill up some buckets. Everything I bought was a $1 or under.  I used my silhouette machine to cut out some shapes to add a little something to all the empty space on some of these toys.

Everything fit pretty nicely into the buckets too!

Here is the other bucket that I put together:


It cost approximately $5 per bucket to fill it up.  I think they are so cute and I know the kiddos will get a lot of use out of these toys.
