Child's party. Fill ice cream cones (flat bottoms) with cake batter half full and bake. Decorate with icing topped with colored sugar. Small marshmallows can be used for candle holders on cakes.
Eliminating drink spills: Your child will be able to hold onto a glass better if you place two rubber bands around the glass an inch or so apart. Makes it easier for little hands to hold.,
Has your child outgrown a favorite sweater? Don't throw it away, chances are it is only the sleeves that are too short. Cut them off and finish the armholes, and the child will have a great sweater vest to wear.
