Make a family key keeper

keys with keyring by (UB) Sean R on FlickrMy husband is always hesitant to let me use his keys, probably because I'm usually borrowing his because my own are lost. I assure him I can't possible lose his keys while I am using them (it's only once I get home that they disappear), but he's unconvinced.

In our house, it's me who always misplaces the keys. But if your husband or partner is the one who's careless with their keys, then a family key keeper might just make the perfect Father's Day present. Not only will it help him keep track of his keys -- guaranteed to make mornings much easier! -- but it'll remind him of what's important each day, as he looks upon the faces of his family.

I'll tell you more about this project after the break.

To make a family key keeper, you'll need:
  • two picture hangers
  • 2 and 1/2 inch pine board, about 12 inches long
  • flat wooden spoons or wooden paint stirrers
  • markers
  • twine or yarn
  • glue
  • small brass cup hooks
  • small photos of family member's faces (optional)
Disney's FamilyFun has the details on how to construct this great family project. After Dad opens it, hang it in an accessible place, so that keys never get lost again.
