  1. These are all really great ideas, Valerie. We’re going to be “borrowing” some! 🙂

  2. Always fun to have new ideas and the photos are awesome quality! I stumbled.

  3. Now if they could just invent invisible crayons……..

  4. Great ideas – sometimes you are just not in the mood for messy!

  5. Those stars are still a favorite of mine – must acquire star-shaped post-it notes =)

  6. I love the window clings on page protectors. That could be a good travel activity too!

  7. Oh my gosh, still to this day my kids’ favorite thing was the invisible paint! I tell ya what… I need to remember not to judge what crafts my kids would or would not like. 4 & 7 and they think it’s sooo fun! Also, love the ‘sweets’ from the coding labels!

  8. Great ideas, and as always, FANTASTIC photos!
