T’was six days before Christmas and my five year old says, “I want Santa to bring me this.” She shows me her “Santa Wish List” she made in school.
I found the Putting Green on Hearthsong for $75 – REALLY $75 for that????
As one of the hard working elves my heart just sank. My first thought was what the hell is that and the more I read the more I was like… um NO! I am NOT letting my five year have “real golf balls and clubs” in my house. Also we don’t play golf but I decided to modify this game and pull something similar off six days before Christmas.
I have a gaggle of felt left over from my epic venture – my son’s felt play tent. I figured what else am I going to do with it? So the more I think about it the more I think I an actually pull this off before Christmas. For example: “golf balls” = ping pong balls, “real putter” = dowel covered in felt with a poly-fil end, the rails either dowels or PVC pipe thread through pocket like a curtain rod through curtains. I have no idea if this is going to work or if it will be an EPIC FAIL project but I hate disappointing my kids so it is worth a try. There are a couple of downsides to this project: one – I have to go to the store to get dowels and two – this is all I have been thinking about so until it is finished my brain can not function or focus on anything else.
Well wish me luck as I head back into Santa’s Workshop because it is going to be a crazy six days
