Whip Up a Ring-Toss Game with the Kids

Pour 1 Tbsp acrylic paint into a clean 12-oz glass soda bottle (choose one with a label that can be removed).

Roll bottle to distribute paint; invert it to allow excess to drip out. Set bottle upright and let dry. Repeat with 10 or 11 more bottles, using 3 paint colors. Arrange bottles in a fruit crate.

Loosen screw on a 3" embroidery hoop (typically $1-$3 each) and discard outer ring. Apply a dab of hot glue to outside of inner ring. Attach a piece of yarn and wrap it around the ring; cut off excess and secure end. Repeat with 11 more embroidery hoops, using 4 yarn colors.

Make a Beach Bag-Towel Combo

1. Place a standard-size bath towel lengthwise on the floor. Place a matching hand towel on top of the bath towel's left end, so that one long edge of the hand towel meets the bath towel's short edge.

2. Sew the opposite long edge of the hand towel to the bath towel. Sew both short sides of the hand towel to the bath towel 4"-5" in from the edge.

3. At the open end of the attached towels, securely sew a 24"-25" strip of nylon webbing or sturdy ribbon to the underside of the hand towel and another to the facing side of the bath towel.

4. Flip the bag inside out and tuck the remaining length of the bath towel inside (use it to dry your hair). Photo credit: Ericka McConnell/Woman's Day
