Simply Resourceful

Simple ways to be more conscious about how we use our resources.

Did You Have a Paddle Board as a Child?

A neighbor friend gave me a bouncy ball weeks ago for Paul to play with because she was concerned that one of her dogs would ingest it.  Within a few minutes of receiving the ball, I knew exactly what to do with it, make a paddle board!  I had one as a child and I thought it'd be a simple birthday gift for Paul.  This simple project took about 20 minutes to make.  I used scrap plywood we had in the garage; sealed the wood with a linseed/beeswax oil; threaded a rubber band through the ball; and attached the rubber band to the plywood. Total cost: $0.00
