Sun Prints: Have kids cut shapes from paper (or leaves, sticks, etc) spread restickable glue on the back, then stick them to a piece of construction paper. Tape the paper to a sunny window, facing out, and leave for at least a week (longer for higher contrast), then peel off cutouts. You can also lay three-dimensional objects (try rickrack, toothpicks, or buttons) flat on a piece of construction paper in a sunny place where they will not be disturbed.

How to make Toy Boats. To outfit a whole marina full of speedboats, yachts, clippers, and dinghies, just add odds and ends from around the house. Pick items that are already waterproof: Make a smokestack from a tub stopper; cut a sail from an overnight-mail envelope; fabricate a fishing net from an onion bag.
Patterned Napkin Rings Create napkin rings as unique as your guests. For each ring, fold a 6-inch length of fabric ribbon in half, right sides facing, and sew ends together with a 1/4-inch seam allowance. Turn the rings right side out, and slip them around rolled napkins.
