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 Lowe's. 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! - Place kiddie pool beneath to save water for soaking plants, etc.

Reuse envelopes by making corner bookmarks from them. Kids can make their own and as long as you have mail you will have an endless supply of bookmarks (you know, 'cause kids lose them).

This lady is so overwhelmed by orders now that she has been posted on Pinterest. She takes kids' drawings and makes them into toys. I hope she is making a business of it and hiring employees to keep up with demand or somebody else is going to take her idea and run with it. It is a fantastic idea, after all.
