Stuffed toy storage

Old DVD or tape rack repurposed into a stuffed toy storage :-)
My boys have so many stuffed treasures that sometimes it gets out of hand. This rack helps contain and display all my boys stuffed toys.

I love making cute candles for the dinner table.
Tonight it was windy so I got out mason jars so my tea lights would stand a chance.
I wanted something to add to the jar and tea light so I scrounged my pantry. I decided these pinto beans would work perfectly.
Anything would look cute; rice, beans, peas, pepper, the skies the limits.

Sucker tree

Easy and adorable!
My sister in-law made this for my nieces fourth birthday party.
It was SO cute and could be any theme.

-flower pot
-2 foam balls
-wooden dowel
-bag of suckers

Place half of a foam ball in flower pot.
Poke stick end of suckers in the whole foam ball till covered.
Stick dowel into bottom foam and sucker top. Decorate accordingly!!

Towel label

Label your family's individual towel hooks so there is never any confusion.

All you need is a dry erase marker and good penmanship :-)

Simplistic success!!!

Rope bridge

Simple fun!!!!
At least two ropes tied between trees and the kids can use their core strength and energy up for hours.

Time out glitter timer

One part gel, twenty parts water, add glitter and use as a soothing time out timer.

I added the gel a little at a time until it took ten minutes to settle. This was the time I was after. You could adjust the gel settling time to your own liking.
