MY FAVORITE PINS THIS WEEK :: Sometimes the simplest ideas are the most engaging. Who doesn’t like easy?!

  • Cardboard Box Fun :: You know how kids always like to play with the packaging? Here’s a great idea—free and fun.
  • Bath Time Fun :: Small toys + frozen in ice = bath time fun.
  • Flashlight Fun :: What boy doesn’t like playing with a flashlight? Take it a step further by making it into a star constellation projection so he can “stargaze” indoors.
