Messy Art Projects

If your kids love to paint or play with clay, or if they just love messy crafts, buy inexpensive plastic tablecloths and use them to protect the work surfaces. They will help keep your table, counter, and/or floor clean, and they can be used over and over again.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
