Thanks for the heads up! You can tell it's not really my thing.

How about one of those inexpensive flip camcorders. They run between $30 -$80 at Walmart. My DD9 is all about video taping herself and her friends putting on "shows"...too funny to watch! She has been using my iPad, but I'm getting her one of these for xmas so she wont break my iPad

And I read about the "wreck the Journal" thing and I don't get the attraction. I guess I don't have enough anger in me yet. My daughter would not get the attraction either. But maybe I should get one for my husband after he has a bad golf game!

Thanks so so much for posting this! My 9yo (almost 10) DD has been doing something similar to this for a few years now. She's been using her old school binders, notebook paper, and scotch tape or glue sticks. I have no doubt she'll love the Smash products. So much more fun.

If you have a Michaels nearby they carry the same line and you can use 40% off coupons. Also Target has a few of the accessory lines on clearance right now.

Thanks for the tip. DD and I just finished looking at the journals online and watching the video and she's in love with this stuff already. Me too actually. So I have a feeling I'll be needing lots of those 40% off coupons.

DD12 is getting a LoveSac and an iPod Touch. In other words, we have already spent more on those two things than we normally do on all of her gifts! I still want her to have quite a few things to open though. So, I just came up with what I think is an awesome idea!

Disney movie night boxes! Each box will contain a tablecloth, cups, plates, and decorations or supplies to decorate for Disney movies that we already own! I may even print up some menus and/or recipes for those nights. She loves having Disney nights, but I always feel too rushed to go buy the needed items. This way, everything is ready to go!

Thanks for some great ideas! I'm still shying away from my dd9 (will be 10 in Nov.) having access to the Internet via iPhone. I'm not getting the duct tape thing what is this all about?

Now comes in hundreds of colors and patterns. Kids make wallets, flowers.. even prom dresses with it. Just google "duct tape crafts" and I'm sure you'll see a ton of cool things. It keeps my son busy for hours and he has made some amazing creations.

You can purchase it at any craft store, and Target has a nice selection as well. Youtube has tons of how-to videos.

So far we bought our 10 year old a Babycakes cake pop maker that flips and a pair of UGGS with buttons in Gray. She wants some riding style boots too, so that's on our list too.

So far DD has green Ugg boots that were on sale for $35. Yes they are real and a cool lime green color. I just bought her too soft cylinder "body" type pillows that were clearanced for $10 each. Never would have paid the original $39.99 each. Also a new ipod touch case with matching headphones on sale for $5 from Target. The journals sound really cool, so I might have to get one or two of those. Other than that I might need to wait for the wish list.

Thanks I had googled duct tape starter kit and didn't see anything. I'll give it a go again. Can you put parental controls on what comes up on YouTube?

My son said this is a good place to start w/duct tape craft ideas: http://www.duckbrand.com/Duck%20Tape...ktivities.aspx

There really is no starter "kit". You just go to Joann's and pick out 3-4 colors/patterns you like and get to work. DS has made wallets, shoes, flowers, figures, and he has been selling covers for kid's planners at school for $5 each.

Here are a few pictures of things he has done. The "hockey guy" is stuffed w/cotton. He made that today for a friend's birthday tomorrow.

Nice idea. Sounds like your house is lots of fun!
