1. Coloring Box
Some children just like to draw all over the walls, no matter how beautiful or freshly painted they are. To avoid this, put him or her in a disposable cardboard box room to color to their heart’s content.
2. No-Spill Bubble Wands
Kids love bubbles, and this is a good way to avoid the mess they usually leave behind. Strap or tape the bubble wands to a post to avoid them spilling all over the patio or the kids’ clothes.
3. Laundry Basket Bathtub Helper
Use a laundry basket in the tub to prevent toys from floating away, and to prevent your little one from falling.
4. Impromptu Pacifier Containers
Pacifiers are constantly getting dropped in transit or thrown at the bottom of germ-ridden purses or diaper bags. Using a small takeout containers will keep them nice and clean.
5. Marshmallow Ice Pack
Putting marshmallows in the freezer to use as an ice pack is a good alternative for boo boos, because they are less searingly cold than traditional ice packs. Plus, they’re soft and mushy.
6. No-Drip Popsicle Cover
We love this hack in using baking cups as no-drip Popsicle cover because no one likes sticky fingers and hands. In fact, we wouldn’t just use this for kids – these are great for adults too.

We love this idea. It would be super easy to carry a mini spray bottle from Walmart in your diaper bag or purse. Just spray water on to the seat belt and buckle to quickly cool them down.
9. Bucket Toy Storage
Buy 10 cheap buckets, drill a few holes and tie them together with some zip ties to make for a great toy-storage center.
10. Lunch-Tray Highway
