Things for Kids
PVC waterfall sprinkler - fun for the summer
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.

Turn an old dresser into this fabulous dress-up closet. I can't even imagine a better way to display such a fun toy room staple.
old dresser >> doll house, plus keep the bottom drawer for the dolls when play time is done!
love this classic color changing flower experiment for kids!!
How can the kids not LOVE this. And they say it's VERY easy! It's gelatin!
Kid Temporary Tattoos. Excellent for trips to theme parks and such. What a great idea!
Concrete that looks like wood!
"Family Store"... kids earn points at home for doing chores/good behavior and then turn in their points for items in the "family store" once a week. Ideas for items in the "store" could be things already around the house like, special snacks, stickers, drinks, notebooks, post-its, dollar store stuff. Use different color stickers to represent the "point value" of each item (point value key posted on side of box).
Reward points system and home "store"- I like this idea over giving an allowance :)
Sponges soaked in finger paint. Stops children from scooping huge balls of paint on their paper! GENIUS!
