Yesterday we paid homage to National Peanut Butter Lovers Day by partaking in a few of our favorite childhood snacks, of which, of course included the PBJ sandwich, toasty grilled cheese, and what’s left of a few boxes of Girl Scout cookies in the pantry (there’s still one week left to replenish our stash before cookie season is over!). Taking a trip down memory lane left us with full and happy bellies; it also got us thinking: what other childhood items do we recall upon fondly?
Many of us tend to throw away childhood memorabilia that are passed down to us from our parents. Maybe storage space is limited or that they simply could not withstand the test of time. We’ve come up with a few fun DIY ideas for your bronzed baby items. Preserve your childhood memories and your children’s precious objects by repurposing them as items that you’ll be using over and over again.
