Use an old tire to create a small backyard pond. My kids, 3 sons, have been helping with yard work and planting. They keep asking for a pond. I think this is a great DIY project to do outside with them. Looks simple.
Ribbon and twinkle lights These are colors I like for the ribbons. reds, light blues and yellows. maybe no pink, add light green? break up color with some off-white ribbon. idea is colorful without being full on rainbow.
