Cutie Cubbies

These critter toothbrush covers are so adorable kids might want to brush their teeth! Make it easier for them with shelves that keep supplies within reach.
To make: Remove the lid of a wooden box. Use a 5⁄8-inch bit to drill a hole on one long edge, one inch from the left corner. Smooth with sandpaper. Paint the inside of the box with acrylic paint; let dry. Stamp on your child's name; let dry. Apply two coats of spray varnish over the paint to seal.

Hardworking Art

Hardworking Art

A cheerful sign brightens the grumpiest day—and saves you from nagging the kids to wash up.
To make: Start with a canvas-backed print or painting. Adhere letter stickers to the canvas, making sure to press down firmly around the edges. Use acrylic paint to cover the surface completely (have the kids brush outward from the letters to avoid getting paint underneath); apply a second coat if needed. Gently peel off the letters while still wet, then let dry completely.
