Links We Love: Butterfly Crafts, Creative Stations for Kids and Grown-Up Lollipops

Even if Summer Fridays aren't part of your schedule, get a jump on the weekend with these fresh ideas, courtesy of some of our favorite blogs and websites...

If your kid's craft corner/play space/art center is as disorganized as our kid's, you'll love this cute, affordable DIY creative center on Modern Parents Messy Kids. Another take on the idea: This lustworthy elfa kid's workstation (which we saw on ohdeedoh). Love!

These sweet coffee filter butterflies from The Mother Huddle are on our to-make list. (And they might actually get made, because not only are they super-cute and easy, but we already have everything we need on hand!)

Is age 4 too young for kindergarten? Read Winnie Hu's article in the New York Times about the kindergarten "redshirting" controversy.

Who says lollipops are just for kids? We can't wait to try the sophisticated creations -- including Champagne and Roses, Strawberry Basil and Cuban Mojito -- available on The Candied Flower's Etsy shop.

Now that the days are longer -- and, presumably, sunnier -- it's more important than ever to slather on the sunscreen. Confused about all the options? Check out iVillage's primer on which SPF is right for you.
