Cool the kids off with a homemade sprinkler. Take a 2 liter soda bottle, poke holes in it. Attach to a garden hose via a male to male adapter that cost less than $5 at Lowes. Toss over a tree branch and let hang. You can adjust how the water sprinkles by adjusting the water flow. When the bottle gets stupid, just switch it out with another bottle, no additional cost! My son loves this. Pic is mine.
bottle cap candles, burn 1 to 1.5 hours ~ great for travel or to use when you're entertaining on the deck at night...soooo easy to make! These would make adorable little gifts bundled in a bag and tied with a string for stockings etc...
Scrap Tutus. Made this for Faith for her highchair at ther first birthday party and then used it as a tutu for her first b-day shoot. I worked out really well. You can cut or tear the fabric. I tore it and it was way easier that I thought it was going to be!
