In the so weird it's wonderful category is artist Ryan McElhiney's old toy lamp. Super easy to reproduce, all we'd have to do is grab a cord/socket and start piling up toys, hot-gluing as we go. Then, when we're done, shoot the whole thing with shiny lacquer. Of course, we wouldn't be limited to toys. Just think of all the other flotsam and jetsam we have lying about that could work.
Time out bottles! Water, glue and glitter..mix and add until it takes 5 minutes to settle. Watching it settle relaxes them, and you don't have to set a timer! Brilliant!!
1. Buy plates from Dollar Store 2. Write things with a Sharpie 3. Bake for 30 mins in a150 oven and it's permanent! Put recipe on, give as gift, they keep the recipe plate! Cute idea!
