Hi Ladies and gents.

Ive been googling images of outdoor spaces because i want to stregnthen my outdoor provision.

Ive seen alot of dangling c.d's. i was just wondering what these are for and how they improve the area. Are they just for younger children to look at and hopefully talk about, or is there more to it than that? :blush:

Thanks for your help. xxxx

They are shiny and reflective . I have chikdren draw patterns on them too, I have some glued to the fence for them to write on. I have them indoors with children photos glued on the non shiny side, all ages love them especially the grown ups.

I've put magnets on them too...look great on the fridge!
Mother's day, Father's day, easter, halloween, christmas! ETC!!
Being a card maker I have lots of stamps so I use them.Make sure you use the right ink though, or it will just smudge!

Never thought of putting them outside but I have a coat hanger with some on indoors to hang within reach of babies and they love it. I decorate them with craft pens so it's not just a plain shiny surface.

Shiny...LOL. All age groups seem to love 'em. My 6yo mindees spent ages decorating them with puffy paint, and they are now stuck to the fence in the garden. However, on another point, if you are also trying to attract birds in to the garden then don't put the cds up cos it scares them away (as I found out!) :)
