Edible crayons. Pretzel rods, with the ends dipped in melted, colored chocolate. Then paper wrapped around them. (Not only would they be great for teachers, they would also work for art parties, preschool parties, any school or home school event - awesome idea

What happens when you put Jello inside of straws? JELLO WORMS! You rubber band the straws together. Pour the jello mixture in the straws. The liquid will fill the straws and around the outer straw. Place it in the fridge until it is gelled, then pull out the clump of banded straws. Run warm water over the straws for about 5 seconds, and the fabulously disgusting life-like worms slide out! So gross, but cute for Halloween!

Use an old Baby Wipes container, hot glue or super glue a large Lego piece to the inside of the lid ...and you have a perfect Lego Travel smart!

Toddler busy tray. Spray paint an old cookie sheet pan and use it as a travel tray. Magnetic things will stick to it and kids can use it as a tray to eat on, or as a table in the car to color on. You can even make the back a chalkboard that they can use and reuse. BEST CHEAP TRAVEL GIFT EVER!

Magnetic Puzzles. Kids can do these on the fridge while mom or dad is cooking. Or can take them in the car with a cookie tray.

Use zippered pencil pouches to organize puzzles instead of storing the bulky boxes. Cut off the image from the front of the box and store it in the bag, too. (This blog post has several great ideas for organizing kids toys.)

Got a bored toddler? Give them a colander and some pipe cleaners...should keep them busy for hours.

Make your own water park with pool noodles and supplies from the hardware store.

It's hot outside! When you head to the Ice Cream truck, bring a cupcake wrapper. It'll save you from "Sticky Hands" :)
