Now that's what I call art with strings attached!

From time to time I look at the internet in search of fun things for the kids to make. Wacky Zacky and Zany Janie really love crayons and markers, but when we get out the chalk, pipe cleaner, puff balls, and macaroni it turns into a special project. The more unique mediums used, the more fun it is to make. I feel like I am open to various types of art. I remember last year my mom telling me about a quilt made out of bra cups and I didn't even bat an eye. However, this past week I came across a new medium of art that actually caused my eyes to pop out of my head as I gasped out loud! It's one of those materials that I thought had only one use, but wow was I wrong! Just check out this website for all the fun things you can make with this medium of art! Now that's what I call art with strings attached!

Zany thought of the day: How does someone come up with an idea like that? Are you sitting at home on a rainy day, bored to tears when a box of tampons catches your eye and you think, "Hmm...Why not?" as you proceed to create a Thanksgiving center piece?

All I can think is how expensive that must be LOL. For once I think I'd resort to the generic brand which under normal circumstances I wouldn't trust, HA!
