For the Kids!
Homemade pet jelly fish. that's about the neatest thing EVER. I did this with my 3rd, 4th and 5th grade class. Told them to bring in a bottle and a bag. Some of the kids brought it in and the rest of the kids thought it was dumb. After we did this project, the kids who thought it was dumb, didn't think so anymore. Kids who made them, named them and love them at home now.
Homemade pet jellyfish. This would be cool to make for school
Magnetic Paint and magnets on the cars...such a cool idea for a boy
Upstairs for adults. Downstairs for the kiddos. Such great use of usually wasted space! Brilliant
Started by getting a 4 x 8 plywood sheet, mixed an outdoor paint with sanded grout in a color that looks like chalkboard because we couldn't find a chalkboard paint that is made for the outdoors. By the end of the weekend the board was in use. Got the recipe for the paint/grout mixture online and to our surprise it works great. Just like the real thing.
Outdoor Chalkboard: Get a 4 x 8 plywood sheet and mix a chalkboard-colored outdoor paint with unsanded tile grout: 1. Pour 1 cup of paint into a container. Add 2 tablespoons of unsanded tile grout. Mix with a paint stirrer, carefully breaking up clumps. 2. Apply paint with a roller or a sponge paintbrush to a primed or painted surface. Work in small sections, going over the same spot several times to ensure full, even coverage. Let dry. 3. Smooth area with 150-grit sandpaper, and wipe off
Next winter, if your area is below 32°, go outside and blow "ice bubbles" The kids will never forget it!! That is something I have never tired. On my list for winter.
Such a great gift idea! Make 50 copies of a paper doll on cardstock, save up scraps of fabric, and include scissors and glue sticks! This will be an excellent stocking stuffer.
Seems like everything is 3D nowadays. Pretty soon we'll be watching 3D movies, playing 3D video games on our 3D TVs, and typing emails on our 3D iPads. Then our cars will have 3D dashboard displays and our fast food menus will have french fries popping out of them like they're ready to leap into our mouth. Mmmmmm... the Future is so tasty.
3-D coloring! Everything drawn on the checkered area will look 3-D when you wear the glasses. So awesome! I want this for me, but I'll probably hold off until the kids are old enough not to scribble on all 50 pages in less than ten minutes.

Playhouse in a hallway! I'm going to use this idea and adapt it to create a tent in front of the library for Summer Camp Read! Just using long tension poles, sewing pockets on the back of the green fabric for the rods, then opening the front of the "tent" and rolling it back to enter the library. Cool! I also bought astro turf for grass...
play tent, on tension rods, in a hallway...genius!!
