My daughter who has 3 children ages 3 mo, 1 yr old and a 2.5 yr old, bought 3 metal flower boxes and put them in the laundry room. They are the right height for the toddlers to put put their shoes away as soon as they enter thru the garage. They also remove their shoes at any door and pick them up to put away:) This little DIY idea makes it easier for them.
Add 1 tsp. of liquid food coloring to 1 cup of water. Drizzle the colored water onto the soil surrounding the base of a plant. Wait 24 hours for the water to absorb. Apply another identical dose if the color change was not sufficient.
