Grosgrain has a great tutorial on printing fabric on your home printer. I can’t wait to try this!
Wake Up World has the how-to’s to regrow 16 foods from scraps. Did you know you could re-grow celery and romaine lettuce by putting the root end in some water?
S.T.E.L.’s simple and elegant hairstyle really, truly lives up to its name. I was actually able to do it on the first try after watching the tutorial.

We’re reaching the end of the school year, which means coming up with some gifts for our teachers. We usually make some treats to give.
My son and his best friend love watching The Wild Kratts and pretending to have creature powers like on the show. So for his friend’s birthday, I thought I’d make him a creature power suit since there aren’t any available in stores. Of course, that meant I had to make a matching one for my son.
I used black cordura fabric because I liked the look and because I didn’t have to finish the edges. I used broadcloth for the accents. Extra wide velcro and clear plastic I cut from a zip pouch that held pillow cases.
And then sewed on the circles. I sewed the large colored circle first and then sewed on the plastic. Don’t sew all the way around. Leave an opening at the top so your child can slip in the “creature power discs.”
You can download printable discs from the PBS Kids website. I printed mine out on heavy card stock. I did have to adjust the size a bit so they would fit properly. For the gloves, I used stretch gloves and felt for the circles since I had to sew them by hand.
