Brave mamas with backyards, take note of this art project from Childhood 101: Dripping with Paint. (Luckily, the long holiday weekend will give you some extra clean-up time!)
Cool Mom Picks alerted us to Keeki Pure and Simple's eco-friendly, phthalate-free nail polish. It's pretty enough for moms, but safe enough for kids -- so your little ones can channel little Zuma Rossdale or Vivienne Jolie-Pitt without fear of fumes.
Searching for an easy way to store all those tiny toys that your kids play with? Check out these brilliant, why-didn't-we-think-of-it drawstring Swoop Bags (which we discovered on ohdeedoh). So easy, so smart.
