Beaded Safety Pin Bracelets- this would be a good Stuart & project! We can drink wine & make jewelry, LOL! All you need is some elastic, safety pins, and beads (try not to go too big on beads, smaller ones tend to work better for this).
Recycled jeans notebook or planner. Use a regular notebook, and cut up them jeans that the kids have outgrown. Also a good idea: using a larger notebook and a patch/screenprint from an old favorite shirt.
