This DIY LEGO Key Holder just made my day!
I am pretty confident I’ll be reaching supermom status once I make a batch of these Rainbow Popsicles for my kids.
Here’s a fab tutorial on how to make a Book Cover Disguise for your wireless router.
DIY.org is a new project by Zach Klein that is trying to create a safe place on the web to foster kids’ creativity. As a mother of two, and creativity being a huge part of my work life, I couldn’t be more excited.
Here’s how it works: Let your kid sign up and create an account where they can safely publish what they make. They can upload videos and pictures of their projects using the DIY website or iphone/iPod Touch app. Kids’ projects are online for everone to see, and parents can add stickers to show support. Parents also have their own control panel to follow their activity and also to make sure they’re not sharing anything that should be private.
Consider it a tool that lets kids collect everything they make as they grow up. I love this idea!
How adorable is this little doll family? Talk about character! Found it over on Etsy in Timo Handmade’s Shop.
Jason Taylor challenged himself to make a product a day for the entire year of 2012! He shares his creations over on Every Day Objects #. Wonderful!

Team SUGRU (gaelic for play) was tired of not being able to fix broken gadgets, so they developed SUGRU, a moldable silicone that is sticky like Super-Glue and fun to use like Play-Doh:
1) Roll it to warm it up
2) Mold it the way you want it
3) Let it cure for 24 hours
Brilliant? YES! Order SUGRU over at Holstee.
Here’s a fantastic book photography enthusiasts: Pinhole Cameras: A DIY Guide, by Chris Keeney. Definitely a cool gift idea for parents that want to pass on the love for photography. What better idea than to build pinhole cameras with your little ones?
My 18 month old son Tilo loves nothing more than to test gravity with my gadgets. Not good. Not good at all. That’s why this post over on Unplggd made me look. It links to a tutorial over at instructables and shows how one can use silicone rubber to protect their camera and have it survive the physical wear and tear a child might put it through. Yes, only parents will understand.
