This idea sucks

Lana catches up with news about Cross stitch on the internet and occasionally gets some great tips. We were able to try out one tonight. Rose was playing with a bag full of very tiny sead beads (used for making bracelets) when the zip lock bag opened and out flew 1000's of beads all over the carpet. After providing Rose with a plastic jar containing a handful of rice - a much better noise toy - Ariel put a stocking over the end of the vacuum cleaner hose and sucked up the beads. Once the opening was covered, she placed the bag over the end and turned off the vacuum cleaner. Voila! Beads in the bag.

This was a lot easier than picking them up one by one.
