As an autism mom, I'm grateful for our flyswatter. My kids love playing in the backyard, and our screen for the sliding glass door got trashed long ago. Welcome minions of flies. The other day, my husband wanted me to run to the store and buy a flyswatter. I'm too lazy to do that, so I told him we could make our own. We twisted a hanger for the handle, and cut up a cereal box for the swatter part. The glue gun came in handy for putting it all together. We were pretty proud of ourselves, and that baby killed us a whole lot of flies.
