Works For Me Wednesday

I drink coffee. A lot of coffee. And I have to have creamer in my coffee. So the end result is that I have quite a few coffee creamer containers (primarily International Delight and Coffee-Mate) and while waiting for the recycling man to come one week when he didn't we decided to play a game using the containers. Now I can't take credit for this because it was really my nephew's kindergarten teacher's idea but they used them for bowling!!! Yes bowling! The creamer containers specifically the ones I mentioned are the perfect size for mini bowling pins!! I'm sorry to say I don't have a picture of this since my camera battery decided to die last night when I decided to upload at about midnight but the general idea is that you line up the containers the same way bowling pins are set up, find a small ball (we used a wiffle ball since it had holes for my 3 year olds fingers and no her fingers didn't get stuck) and roll it down the lane. That's what works for me when you're stuck inside for 7 days in a row and are having a major case of cabin fever. Head on over here for more Works for Me Wednesday this week and next as Kristen is headed to Kenya with Compassion Bloggers for the next two weeks. If you want to read about Kristen's journey click here, you can also read about Mckmama's journey of the same trip here. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they share their love in Kenya.
