Take the doodle pages...kids cut them out and create brand new works of art. Could be on any theme...great adaptation!
Great idea to create a background for those hundreds of pictures you take as the baby digs in to his or her first birthday cake. Could be done in any color to match any party theme.
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.
Recipes to Try
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. $
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.
Have the kids draw themselves on little circles on the first day and then copy them and cut them to paste around a new page. Could be used for a class news letter !
This could easily be done with old book pages and any kind of silhouette. Great step by step instructions.
Sticker Shock -Yes these are decals but there are tons of options out there for shapes and colors. These would be great in a space you did not own. That way you could take them down when you move or your kids get tired of their rooms.--For the perfect wallpaper call Concept Candie Interiors--www.conceptcandie.com-wallpaper

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!

Printable Abstract Coloring Book- These and mandala coloring pages are great for getting some quiet time out of the bigger kids. Colored pencils or markers- or can print on water color paper and paint them in too.
My First Art Book. Take digital photos of all your little one's pieces and then throw them out. Second, use the photos to create something
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!
home is where the heart is.
Salt dough thumbprint ornament - I could have the dough ready with shapes already cut out, then the kids could put thumbprints on when they get here, we play & snack while they bake and cool, then they can paint the fingerprints and take them home!

Pinner says, "They wanted a photo booth, but renting them was too expensive so they DIY'd it. built the structure out of PVC and hung red shower curtains. We used a laptop with the Sparkbooth software program installed on it, and set a box of props nearby along with small cards guests could take which had the address to our website, where the pictures would be." Great idea!
check out that bed!!! Love the night stand and could also be done on a dresser baseball theme bedroom

Simple portraits of the kids in a window. These could either feature faces obscured/covered, kids could be facing away from the camera, or the portraits could be taken of them looking out of the window hopefully.
Girls sent in photo of themselves and bride, and either answer 5 out of 10 questions (“what’s the funniest thing you’ve ever heard Kasey say?” or “What do you like most about Kasey’s husband-to-be?” etc…) or gave them the option to just write their own special note to her. What we ended up with was about 30 pages of amazing memories. Every girl sent something in and it was darling. Could do for any major event- birthday, graduation, etc.
ADORABLE way to do recipes. Some years ago I bought an out of date textbook (SO STURDY!) divided it into sections. Then cut pages from magazines, complete with photo of the finished dishes, and fit them onto the page. I would add a clippings of flowers, saying, or anything else, that fit any areas of the page left uncovered. I left blank areas for NOTES and HINTS. A LOT of these recipes turned out to be FAMILY FAVORITES!
This could be a great last minute DIY for adults and kids. I am thinking big spray painted soda bottles on the back. The tube is cute but not the end of the world not to have. You could probably even make it out of black fabric and some sort of interfacing. A shark counterpart would be fabulous! #DIY #NoSew
I made the Bible out of fondant. I cut out a smaller square for the "pages" and then cut a larger square around to look like the leather cover. Sealed them together with water and painted the edges of the pages with gold luster dust. Same thing with the cross out of fondant on top.

A great relationship happens when two people who truly understand each other and love each other for who they are come together and create something stronger than either of them could be on their own. #relationships #love #quotes
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! :)
Cute clock! And you could use any symbols and words on the would be relevant to your life! Great idea.
