What to have on hand
Create a special box or drawer filled with the following supplies that your child can use only during your "coworking" times.
Tools: Glue stick, masking tape, markers, kid-safe blunt scissors
Handmade books: Scrap-paper books, quickly stapled together, are a more exciting place for collages, scribbles, and stickers than single pages.
Interesting junk mail: Invitations, toy catalogs, odd-size or colored envelopes, giveaway stickers and mailing labels, paper mailing tubes, checkbook boxes
Precut pictures: From catalogs, junk mail, and duplicates of your photos.
Stick 'em up
What you'll need: Pad of sticky notes, crayons
Best for: 1 and up
Stick a few rows of notes to a wall or the side of your desk and have your toddler take them off and put them back up again (and again!).
Hand your older toddler a pad of notes and a few crayons and say, "Would you draw a picture on each, and then decorate this door?"
Write a number from 1 to 20 or an individual letter -- from the alphabet, or just the ones in your child's name -- on each sticky note. Place the numbers or letters out of order on the wall and challenge your preschooler to put them in order.
If your child counts but doesn't yet recognize numbers, put one star on one note, two stars on the next one, and so forth. Then he can also line up his notes by the number of stars.
What you'll need: Masking tape, paper, markers or crayons
Best for: 18 months and up
Make a house or letter of the alphabet by putting strips of tape on a piece of paper. Have your child color the entire page.
Once she's colored the whole page, carefully remove the tape to show her the picture beneath.

Who knew? That...
- Cure urinary tract infections with Alka-Seltzer. Just dissolve two tablets in a glass of water and drink it at the onset of the symptoms. Alka-Seltzer begins eliminating urinary tract infections almost instantly-even though the product was never been advertised for this use.
- Honey remedy for skin blemishes... cover the blemish with a dab of honey and place a Band-Aid over it. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin sterile, and speeds healing. Works overnight.
- Listerine therapy for toenail fungus: Get rid of unsightly toenail fungus by soaking your toes in Listerine Mouthwash. The powerful antiseptic leaves your toenails looking healthy again.
- Easy eyeglass protection... to prevent the screws in eyeglasses from loosening, apply a small drop of Maybelline Crystal Clear Nail Polish to the threads of the screws before tightening them.
- Cleaning liquid that doubles as bug killer... if menacing bees, wasps, hornets, or yellow jackets get in your home and you can't find the insecticide, try a spray of Formula 409. Insects drop to the ground instantly.
- Smart splinter remover: Just pour a drop of Elmer's Glue-All over the splinter, let dry, and peel the dried glue off the skin. The splinter sticks to the dried glue. Hunt's Tomato Paste boil cure... cover the boil with Hunt's Tomato Paste as a compress. The acids from the tomatoes soothe the pain and bring the boil to a head.
- Balm for broken blisters... to disinfect a broken blister, dab on a few drops of Listerine, a powerful antiseptic
- Vinegar to heal bruises... soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply it to the bruise for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and speeds up the healing process.
- Quaker Oats for fast pain relief... it's not for breakfast any more! Mix 2 cups of Quaker Oats and 1 cup of water in a bowl and warm in the microwave for 1 minute, cool slightly, and apply the mixture to your hands for soothing relief from arthritis pain.

I like online shopping cause it's so easy and there's so much variety, especially that I found an online store that sells the cutest, funkiest and most Unique Baby Clothes. What I like about this site is because you can choose which style you want and age range too. From girls clothing to Baby Boy Clothes are all available. I particularly like their baby pajamas and animal printed onesie., very colorful and pretty. And even though their items are fabulous, it's still budget friendly
So if you also like those unique and beautiful stuff for your little ones, just hop by through their site. Winks!
