December 2013 Darby Girl Review: Memo Boards

I couldn’t believe how much stuff came in the Darby Girl box! There were Beads in a Bottle, cork boards, dye, fabric, flip-flop push pins, glue, and trim.

The Darby Girl instructions were pretty easy to follow. Obviously my 5 year old needed assistance with most of this project!

She chose pink for the dye, and she was thrilled at the final result!

I really liked how there were so many steps to this project – you could have done this in a couple bursts over several weekends. We cut up the fabric to the right size and glued it on. I did run out of glue and I don’t believe a child would be more efficient than me in their glue usage. Although I probably used too much!

Making "Beads"

The Beads in a Bottle are around $8 by themselves, so I was impressed with the amount of materials besides the glue! I was (obviously) responsible for the beads on the board in the upper left hand corner.  I left her to her own devices on the rest. She is very excited to hang them up (I will use 3M squares) and can’t wait to use the flip-flop “poke pins.”  She thinks she is super grown up to be able to have some! I absolutely love that she added an eyeball to one of the boards. There was plenty of fabric to cover it – I just thought it would be fun to have a plain board.
