  • Draw With An Official World's Smallest Etch-A-Sketch

    They say go big or go home. In this case, I’m taking the opposite approach because by going small I’m thinking big, or well just outside of the box. This is a World’s Smallest Etch-A-Sketch, a toy that many have used to pull themselves out of boredom since 1959. Now you can have it in a mini version. Think about how hard you’ll have to think to come up with cool designs?!

  • Do A Jigsaw Puzzle

    1000-piece jigsaw puzzles are good time sucks. The whole process of organizing the pieces, building the border and then finding sections that fit together is long, but very enjoyable. We love this FRIENDS one too because the picture on the front should be fairly easy to match up with the pieces.
