Make A Rope With Recycled Bags

If you are like me, you probably have a million of those plastic grocery bags. Ever wonder what you could do with all of them? I reuse them at Save A Lot, and as garbage liners in our bathroom cans. You could try the clever trick below and make rope with them. It appears to be very strong, and is a great way to keep our landfills empty of these dreadful bags. I have not yet tried this, and yes we are studying reusing and recycling of products.

One of the great things about homeschooling is the flexibility to change what does not work, or enhance something that does. With that said we are switching up our lessons a bit. With DJ having more intense science, and history work this year, in order for him to do a good job he needs more time in his day. So Tuesdays, and Wednesdays DJ will have one of those subjects plus Math, and Spelling. The others will not be done on those days for him.
