When school's out for summer and your kids are home during those long, hot days, sometimes a cool treat is just what you both need. But why not make an activity out of that afternoon snack and get your kiddos involved in the kitchen? From popsicles to hand pies, here's our top kitchen gadget picks for making summer treats with your kids.
As a child, did you pretend to live in a castle by arranging old blankets over the couch and chairs? There was something so fun about sitting underneath mom's old sheets. Now think how much more awesome it would be to actually have a bed that looks like a mini house! Enter the toddler house bed, also known as a Montessori floor bed.
These beds are exactly what they sound like: Picture a house-shaped frame above the mattress, complete with windows, a door and a kitchen (OK, just kidding about the kitchen). But now picture your little angel's precious head resting underneath one of these magical creations.
While this may seem like a cool, new way to sleep, the floor bed concept actually dates back to the early 20th century teaching philosophy called the Montessori Method, which focuses on placing everything a child needs to learn and explore at the child's level. So, by placing their bed on the floor, you give children independence and a chance to learn on their own terms.
Here, we've rounded up some of our favorite toddler house beds that are ready to take up residence in dreamland.

A refugee from his broken planet who saves earth (more than once), Superman was sent to America as his father's final act before d...ying. Does this make him the ultimate immigrant success story? Disillusioned with a crime-filled world, Bruce Wayne seeks guidance from a shaman and transforms himself into the flawlessly moral Batman. Through a series of close readings of DC and Marvel comics, Marco Arnaudo explores the influence of religion and myth on superhero stories as well as their relationship to the classical epic and baroque style.

Their first mistake was to assume he would give up. Heracles had it all: a beautiful home, a loving family and a reputation as a g...reat soldier. Unfortunately, due to his success, he became a victim of jealousy. As the result of a vicious plot, Heracles was hypnotised into committing a terrible crime. Devastated by his actions, he wandered aimlessly, immersed in depression. Finally, he found some solace in the fact that he could atone for his sins by completing ten impossible tasks. The creator of these tasks was Eurystheus, Heracles's nemesis, who was constantly angered by his refusal to accept defeat. As a man of action, Heracles never complained and never backed down; he simply got on with the job at hand. Follow Heracles as he strives to complete his tasks by battling a giant lion, fighting monstrous birds and tricking someone into carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. read more
Myths reflect, reinforce, and sometimes subvert gender ideologies and so have an influence in the 'real world'. This is true in th...e present no less than when the Greek and Roman myths were created. The struggles to redefine gender roles and identities in our own time are inevitably reflected in our interpretations and retellings of these classical myths. Using the new lenses provided by gender studies and diverse forms of feminism, Lillian Doherty re-examines some of the major approaches to myth interpretation in the twentieth century: psychological, ritualist, 'charter', structuralist and folklorist. She also explores 'popular' uses of classical mythology - from television and comic books to the evocation of goddesses in Jungian psychology. read more
