Links We Love: Paper Roll Garlands, Kiddie Duds as Decor and Happy Healing

Surfing the Internet for cute kids' stuff, must-have mommy finds, great recipes and fun things to do this weekend? Here's what we love this week...

Happy first day of fall! Kick off the season with an impromptu celebration. Dim Sum, Bagels and Crawfish shows how to craft an artsy recycled garland kids can easily paint and hang in the house or backyard with ribbon (hint: start stockpiling toilet paper and paper towel rolls!).

If you simply can't part with memory-filled outgrown children's clothes, like baby's swimsuit from the past summer or a much-loved birthday dress, use it as decor in kids' rooms. Ohdeedoh suggests framing a favorite item, or just hanging it on a pretty hanger or hook in full view. Suddenly, clothing clutter will look perfectly placed.

There's no doubt your kids go through bandages quickly, for tiny cuts and imaginary owies. Instead of turning to fancy characters, Salty Pineapple shows the fun of doodling on inexpensive plain bandages -- kid-created puppies, cupcakes and cloud designs are sure to heal the next scrape.

Finally, take advantage of delicious seasonal tomatoes with these mouth-watering recipes for mini BLTs and grilled bruschetta from Fix Me a Snack. You may just entice your kids to eat veggies when presented in a cool, colorful rainbow of red, yellow and green.
