We have had a trampoline for a few years now and I think we take pretty good care of it.  We take it down for the winter, and try to avoid the kids “abusing” it.  Unfortunately, I can’t say the same thing for the weather!  All it took was a few bad wind storms last year and the poor net and safety pad were trash!  I am sure I am not the only one who got pinched by a trampoline spring or two as a kid. It doesn’t feel good!  I was hoping to avoid that with my kids. Since I am thrifty, I didn’t want to spend a lot on a replacement.  These pool noodles were from the dollar store.  I bought 10 but only ended up needing 9.  Can’t beat $9!  Not to mention, I think it looks fun and brightens up the back yard!

You will need:

Pool noodles

box cutter

A tool to remove the springs (we got one with our trampoline that we saved. but I found a replacement here for super inexpensive if you need one!)

Begin by measuring your spring and deciding what length you would like your sections to be.  Then measure and cut your pool noodles into as many sections as it will provide.  You will probably end up with little pieces off the ends, save them, they will work for summertime crafts for the kids!

Once you have them all cut, it is time to put them over the springs. Using your nifty tool, remove one spring at a time, sliding the pool noodle onto the spring before replacing it.

This isn’t hard, just monotonous.  Thankfully I had my husband do it for me and it took him just a few minutes.

There you have it!  A bright, cheerful trampoline makeover that will be fun all summer long!

Tiffany has another great recipe to share this week!
My mom always made our play-dough growing up and I now make it for our kids. This recipe is a fun and easy way to bring the kids into the kitchen. I love to get the kiddos involved, especially on recipes like this where they get to be in charge and use their imaginations on the colors and scents. Sometimes they pick the wackiest combinations, but that is what’s fun about making this recipe. They get so excited when it’s time to make a new batch, and that just blesses my heart. Plus, they will sit and entertain themselves and that helps me out when I’m in a pinch. I love the way they get creative and bring me special presents too. You know what I also love about this recipe?! I love how soft and pliable it is and how grrrreat it smells compared to the real stuff. This recipe is truly an oldie but goodie. I know now, that people are using kool-aid packets to color and scent the play-dough and I’m really excited to give this a try the next time we make it.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup salt
  • 4 tablespoons cream of tarter
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp any flavor extract that you desire
  • food coloring, desired amount

 Directions

In a double boiler, combine flour, water, salt, oil and cream of tartar over medium heat; whisk until smooth.

Next add desired amount of coloring and desired amount of extract, stir well.
Continue stirring until play-dough forms. (about 20 minutes) Remove from boiler and let cool to room temp. Store in covered container or a gallon sized Ziploc bag.
Here’s a thrifty tip… I have a special drawer in my kitchen just for kids. I keep ALL their play-dough playin’ gadgets in this drawer. Here’s where the tip comes in. I look in second hand stores to buy cookie cutters, rolling pins and whatever else I come across that I think would make play-dough fun. I’ve even found expensive play-doh gadgets! I scored a couple weeks ago when I found 100 piece cookie cutter set for three dollars. I’ve found in my 18 years of being a mom, kids don’t need the latest and greatest play-dough gadgets to have fun. :)
