Dental Floss String
Setting up an arts and crafts project is a great activity for the kids to do with a babysitter. If you're going out for a long overdue dinner and movie and have a new babysitter coming over, everyone will be more comfortable working on a pre-planned activity like jewelry-making.
Use dental floss to string beads for necklaces, bracelets, and other homemade jewelry projects. The woven nylon fibers are stronger than string or twine and hold tight when tied into a knot. Dental floss is one of the best craft tools because it is hard to break, but easy to cut.
