Last night the hubs and I put up a clothesline...in our house. (It's not for clothes though.) We used a couple of nails and some jute cord and hung it right in the middle of the hallway.
For now we have our countdown to Christmas treat-bags hanging on it. After Christmas we plan to use it to hang the children's artwork, papers, and other special projects they do during our school time.
A little word about our countdown for those who might want to know...
I buy treats to put inside the bags and each night one child gets to take a bag down to open. We take turns starting with the youngest. The kids get so excited when it is their night to take down a bag. I have numbers on each of the snowmen, numbering 1 to 24. We start this on December 1st and continue through Christmas Eve.
The treats are small and simple but this is a lot of fun. The kids look forward to it every year.
