An adorable gift that will be treasured by any mom, the mug holds eleven ounces of her favorite beverage

Baby Meals:

I used an ordinary-sized coffee mug to keep the baby's cereal warm.

Plus, it has a handle, so you can feed baby with ease.

After you are done, rinse out and fill with a cup of coffee.

Toy blocks:

Why not use paper cups?

Stack them, sort them, pile them up, build a castle!

When baby is finished playing, the cups are cheap to replace too.

Laundry Drying:

If you're low on cash and do your own laundry, a extra shower rod placed in middle of shower stall works awesome for drying clothes.

Just make sure a piece of cheap bath mat (rubber) is placed between wall and rod, so it won't mess up the paint (something I wish I had done ahead of time.)
