Welcome to Works-For-Me Wednesday, a weekly tip carnival hosted by Shannon at Rocks in my Dryer!
Today's tip is pretty simple. You know those times when you want to have a picnic, and can't decide what to use as a ground cloth? You don't want to get one of your nice blankets icky, but it needs to be something to protect you from any dampness on the ground & help keep bugs away. We've used a big quilt in the past, but it was hard to clean, since it won't fit in our washing machine.
That's when I got the idea to use a vinyl tablecloth. I got ours at Wal-Mart around Easter last year, so it has a cute chickie print. I started out putting the vinyl side down, but the fuzzy backing would get tangled in Wendy's little damp fingers & toes. But using it with the fuzzy side down works great! You can usually find these at Wal-Mart or similar stores for just a few dollars. Many times the prints they offer change by season, so there are some pretty cute ones available.
And here's a picture of Wendy enjoying the picnic "blanket" on the day she turned 6 months old - which seems like forever ago!
