One of my husband's friends was kind enough to watch our daughter while my husband got some new tires. (Auto Shops and a 2 year old don't tend to mix well) We were quite grateful that he agreed to help, but he also did this project with our daughter! He cut out her name and let her paint it. It was a very cool way to spend an afternoon.
It just so happens his wife is quite crafty as well and is blogging about crafts and being a working mom and a vet school widow (something I can also attest to!). Check it out here.
