Treasure bags

Friday's Grand Connection Fun

Pops and I moved into our new home a few weeks ago ... or should I say, we are moving into our new home. We are now going through the seemingly endless task of unpacking boxes. Sometimes we'll discover treasures that we have long forgotten—a picture of a loved one, a favorite vase, or even a book or two that we had intended to read.

Speaking of treasures. Can you identify the picture above? If you said, "plastic container that a new curtain comes in," you are right! Moving into a new house, we had to buy lots of new curtains, and I just couldn't throw away the nifty plastic containers that they come in. They are perfect for "treasure bags." I've already given a couple of them to two of the grandkids, and they loved them. When we went for a walk they filled their bags with acorns, rocks, and I think a few sticks.

The next time that you purchase curtains, you may want to retrieve some "treasure bags" for your grands. Of course, Ziploc bags could easily be used for the same purpose.

Is there a special place where your grandchildren place their "treasures" when they go on outings with you? What are some of your grandchildren's "treasures"?

Have a great weekend!

What a marvelous idea. I have a treasure box where I keep their little notes and drawings and they keep their special “treasures” in the cubby hole beneath the stairs. Blessings, Rita
