Are you feeling like trying something a little daring today? Perhaps doing something for yourself, your family or your home that's a bit delightful? How about just a fun project that's out-of-the-box? We spotted a couple of cute projects to try this weekend (whether you've got kiddos or not) and we also read a neat tip that anyone could follow to keep their life (and home) a little more sane.

Top image: Just can't share how delighted we are with this art project that is visible only when it rains. Not only is it something new that we've never seen before, it's a fun project that could bring some cheer to the wettest, most gray, unpleasant days. Today, Make Art That Only Appears When It Rains.

Also in the art department was this cool abstract art idea, DIY Room Decor: How To Make Large Abstract Art with a Spin Toy. All it takes is one of those spin toys, a scanner, an editing program and a trip to a printer. Love that this could be made with any color imaginable to match your decor.

Loved this life tip for all ages spotted in 5 Strategies to Keep the House Clean (and Your Sanity Intact!) with Young Kids, especially relevant during projects month here on Apartment Therapy. The tip? Put Things Away Before Starting Something New. So simple. So hard to do. But so important to remember when tackling organization projects, DIY projects around the house, even cooking projects.
