the cadillac of sit upons

did you make these in scouts?!? sit upons? i swear mine was two paper plates sewn together with yarn! and i sat on it. on the ground, in the mud, in the rain, in the woods!

nowadays, these young whippersnapper girl scouts have created the cadillac of sit upons.

an empty icing bucket from a bakery. decorate it. put ALL of your scouty stuff in it. mess kit, canteen, bug spray, sunscreen, poncho, and song book. put the lid on - sit.

freaking genius.

we had to weave newspaper strips together for what seemed like weeks.
Empty buckets?
Whew- We were way not smart enough to be in the woods alone.

did you get ink all over you?

i'm thinking of getting one for each kid. then they can "sit upon" in target while i shop.
