The item for Today is below.
Item: You are hunting for "Love Birds".

Make sure to claim your 1000 points when  you find today's item!

Starting February 1st, I will be including any page on this site as a page to search for the Scavenger Hunt items. Not just the crochet patterns. When that starts, you will be searching for the Scavenger Hunt item just for the 1000 points secret code that you can use to get 1000 points with for finding that day's item. That will be the only reward. The clue will be related to the page that you will find it on.

I am now using images that are in either of the 2 Paper Bead Generators, or a thumbnail image of a pattern relevant to the current time period, for the daily Scavenger Hunt Items.

The daily scavenger hunt item can only be found for one day.

You tape it down using painters tape and it stays in place while you move the paper down the sheet while cutting your strips.

Tuesday's Tip

Turn Magazines into Art: You can make some really neat paper mosaic ornaments with your kids by cutting up several different colors of paper into about 1/4" to 1/2" pieces then applique or decoupage them onto little wood pieces that have been painted white or black. (You can use old magazines for various colors!) You can also do this with cardboard shapes as well.
