DIY: Flashlight Lantern

Almost all the flashlights sold today have warning labels that read "Not Safe for Children". The made-for-kids flashlights are awesome, but for some reason (even with 4 kids in the house) we don't have a single one! One of my favorite things to do as a child was to play with my father's flashlights but I'm always nervous about letting my kids play with ours. The new high-beam energy efficient lights can be powerful stuff! So, I've found a way to make a temporary lantern that allows you to slip a flashlight inside. Then, you can enjoy some reading under the covers with your little ones! I'm over at The Southern Institute today sharing my DIY project
Please stop by and see me and get the full tutorial there!

I'm afraid of those new flashlights in the hands of my grandkids, too.

In fact, I'm even a little afraid of them in the hands of my husband, the biggest kid of all!


PS. Cute idea...
