1. Ruler Organizers
Painted clothespins and a trusty ruler are a match made in heaven. Your child can pin up artwork, playdate reminders, and notes from pals.
2. Cotton Candy Monsters
The options are endless when it comes to molding cotton candy into funny-looking monsters. They make the perfect cupcake topper.
