Regular, everyday magnets will work, but they lack that certain something that makes your child feel special. An easy fix to that is to create “Look What I Made” Magnet Clips. They are quick, easy to make, and can be tailored to fit each child in your life. Have a little one helping you? Perfect! Just be sure to supervise if she is using any small buttons or accessories.

This week’s offerings included all we needed to make fresh Peach-Nectarine Salsa, a great alternative to traditional salsas.
