Witchiness is all the rage right now, and I love it. I find myself wanting to paint everything black and purple like my teen self used to do. There are entire groups dedicated to Gothic home decorating, crafting, even gardening!

I have been on a kick to craft with items I find within the house. I especially enjoy finding new uses for things, such as nail polish, baby oil, and even tennis balls. Your kids can get involved in this activity, which is a great way to teach children about recycling.
Here are a few things you can do with your next set of tennis balls:
1. Chair and desk protectors. My daughter's old school used to require that eight tennis balls be brought in each year. Turns out you can cut an X pattern in the tennis balls and put them on the ends of chair and desk legs. This prevents noises that distract from the daily lessons and offers protection for the floor from scratches.
2. As a pen holder. Cut one slit in the end of the tennis ball. You can then keep it on your desk to hold pens, pencils, paper clips, toothpicks, or any other small stationary item.
