Kids break things. Well, adults break things too... but kids break things frequently.
This is the second time I've fixed our shoji paper. My wife told me her mother used to use origami to patch holes when she was a kid. I found a sea creature coloring book with various sized sea creatures. Traced them, cut them out, and glued them over the holes. I could use scraps of shoji to make the repairs instead of replacing the entire paper, and it looks nice too.
I also told my son I won't make any more fish if he makes more holes... but maybe we can make more fish without making holes first!
Do you have any examples of creative fixes for broken things? especially those broken by kids?
