Time for a little cheap entertainment....


What can we do with bread ties....you know those silly plastic clips that come on bread, rolls or english muffins...stuff like that. Here is something that is kind of fun. (I'm easily amused...lol.) Break or cut one of the closure tabs of the tie. lay them on a smooth surface, I think the floor or a table top works best. Take your finger and give the remaining tab a quick flick....and away it goes, spinning across the surface. fun huh.

You can put a masking tape line on the floor and try shooting the tie across the line or even knock your tie across the line by bumping them. The ties come in different colors or brands so it is easy to divide them up. If you don't want to mess with tape, use a seam line on the tile or a board on your hardwood floors.

See who can spin the farthest...who can spin the longest...the options are endless.

OK, the downside to this is that you are going to find these puppies everywhere...under the stove, the table...everywhere. If I were you I would number them with a smudge proof magic marker and make a game out of it. At the end of each round of spinning, you have to account for each and every numbered tie. Listen, on a rainy day...you WILL thank me for this one.

That is to funny! Thanks for the comment! I am so glad because that is how I feel. You are only as old as you let yourself be. That is a cool idea I need to keep them for the kids to play this summer that I am watching. No I don't mind comments the more the marrier! LOL! Hope I can post here.
