This project is just the ticket for crafting with little ones!
I have recently officially added raffle ticket rolls to my ever-growing roster of incredibly-versatile-found-papers-to-make-things-with. This project is just the ticket for crafting with little ones—working with
strips of raffle tickets is particularly simple because they’re already cut perfectly straight and are easy to tear. Plus kids (of all ages) will be proud to use their work and eat their breakfast cereal off these place mats. Talk about a meal ticket!
