DIY Lacy Lamp

Have one of your kids blow up a balloon as big as they like without it popping. Tie a string around the top and suspend it. Then, take some old lace doilies that you have lying around the house (you might need to contact grandma!) and coat it liberally with glue. Stick the lace to the outside of the balloon, making sure that you completely cover it, and leave to draw. Pop the balloon and voila! you have a homemade lamp shade to place over a light fixture.
