How to keep a child busy for hours in the summer: DIY: Giant Ice Cube Awesomeness - filled with plastic animals, dinos, and such. And I'm sure you could put in food dye before its frozen to color it like the ice block in the photo.
for hand sanitizer! LEGOs suspended in a liquid soap dispenser. Fun to put out at a LEGO party or everyday use in your kids' bathroom! I'd probably search for a cuter dispenser, maybe more geometrical, but still such a cute idea!
DIY: PVC Pipe Shoe Storage - so fun and so simple, could easily spray paint or cover in fabric or paper too. maybe a horizontal layout of two rows or something. I think this would be good for garage "yard shoes" storage
