Another idea to help the feet!! Listerine: the BEST way to get your feet ready for summer. Sounds crazy but it works! Mix 1/4c Listerine (any kind but I like the blue), 1/4c vinegar and 1/2c of warm water. Soak feet for 10 minutes and when you take them out the dead skin will practically wipe off!  For more great tips, recipes and motivation The New You by shrividhya s

Great gramma gift and fun project to do with kids. Take photos, cut them out and glue onto white paper. Then photo copy onto transparency paper, cut out image and roll it up so that it can fit into the top of a soap bottle. Fill with clear soap. This is so fun! :) by regina

This would be great as one page.  Mama hen could snap open, and eggs with baby chicks inside could be underneath her.  Put cord on baby chicks to take them out and have them play around mama. by elena

Recycling Candles. Apparently this works so well scentsy is upset about the post! great tut.. I'm posting it in case scentsy makes them take it down! If you have a scentsy warmer, melt down your old candles, pour them in into ice cube trays, freeze for 20 minutes then pop them out and store them away in bags and use in your scentsy (or any other warmer). No wasted candles and in this economy, every little bit helps! by aftr

Candy Buffet in any color you want. This could be a dressy idea for adults if you don't have kids. You could even trade out some hard candy for chocolate. If you don't have the same pins you could always take some of our brooches or hajib pins and decorate these. Another choice would be to get napkin rings to put on the ribbon and then just wire them onto the lids. Elegant. by jill

This file has four printable pages to allow your students to practice extending patterns. The patterns feature clip art associated with going back to school.    Students identify the pattern and determine which picture would extend the pattern; they cut the pattern pieces from the bottom of the paper and glue them in the appropriate place.     These pages could be used for morning work, homework, or regular classwork. This activity would also make a great math center or math station. $ by mitzi

Popped Bubble Art: I've done this activity with my kids a few times now and it never fails to fascinate them - and me!  Simply color bubble mix with food coloring and blow bubbles onto paper - as the bubbles land and pop, they create beautiful works of art. It goes without saying that this project is best done outdoors.  A great one for those lazy summer afternoons. by Michele Bianchi

This would be great in a family room or play room.  Looks like 1" x 4" or 1" x 6" pieces of wood.  Could get them all cut to size at the lumber store or Home Depot.  Take them home, sand them, primary them up and paint away with craft paint.  :) DONE! by meghan

Great idea for kids...  Buy a white ceramic  plate (dollar store) and let the kids create a design with sharpie pens.  Bake @ 350 for 30 minutes.  PS: Mr. Clean Magic eraser will take off any unbaked sharpie mistakes. Cut a small piece off and use tweezers for a tiny eraser, or use the whole sponge to erase an entire design until perfect enough to bake on permanently. by batjas88
