Velcro, Craft Sticks and Bottle Lids...Oh My!

So while I was browsing around Pinterest, I saw a picture of some craft sticks with Velcro on them.   I didn't pin it but it stayed in my head.  I saw these Velcro circles at the dollar store so I decided to try making some.  I used a dab of hot glue when sticking the Velcro on, even though they did have sticky backs, just to reinforce them.  I also added some Velcro to some bottle lids. T designed  and created all afternoon with these.  Super fun!

That would be great for in the car! So putting that in my bag of tricks for our next road trip. Time to start saving lids again.

That's a terrific idea! I don't have any velcro circles at the moment, but I may try adhesive magnets!

I just started working at a daycare. There are 3 children that are quite older than the rest and I could save time by showing them how to make these for a center. Because they are older, the toys in our room are not always old enough for them, so they might have fun being my prep people for this
