    The year may be young, but Pinterest fans have been busy, busy, busy.

    In December, Pinterest released the parenting trends it predicted were going to blow up big in 2016.

    In addition to gender-neutral nurseries, Pinterest's predictions included no-sew bandana bibs, indoor games you can DIY, and teaching kids to code.

    Of course, now that it is 2016, Pinterest can look at actual data instead of just making predictions, and today it announced the top parenting searches of the year so far.

    I know — the year is still early — but let's not let that spoil our fun.

    So what are parents searching the most so far in 2016? According to Pinterest, these 10:

    2. Books parents should read to their kids before they grow up.

    Sensory play was one of the trends Pinterest predicted would be big in 2016, and galaxy slime is the definition of cool sensory play.

    7. Make your own jellyfish in a jar.

    This is way cheaper than an aquarium — no wonder parents are searching it like crazy!

    8. Tabletop biospheres.

    This one will require a trip to the tropical fish store, but it's amazing for teaching kids about science.

    9. Epic cardboard forts.

    This top search makes me think parents are looking for something to do with all of the leftover boxes from the holidays.

    10. Writing practice using shaving cream.

    This no-mess activity is great for kids just learning to write, but you're going to need a whole lot of paper towels on hand.
