Links We Love: Memorial Day Crafts, Eco-Friendly Nail Polish and Hot Military Dads

Wondering what to do/make/buy over this long holiday weekend? Get inspired by these ideas from some of our favorite bloggers...

We love these patriotic, patterned pinwheel cupcake toppers from the long thread. Originally designed for the 4th of July, they'll jazz up your Memorial Day picnic, too. Make them now, use them twice!

Looking for more Memorial Day crafts? Check out these cute, easy ideas from Toddler Craft.

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.

Having a BBQ this holiday weekend? Let iVillage's 30 Best Burgers for Backyard Grilling inspire your efforts.

Finally, for some patriotic eye-candy, check out our Hot Military Dads slideshow. We salute them!
