1. Indulge your inner lazy baker and your inner child by making this Rice Krispies Treat cake for dessert.

It's dorm-friendly, too, because you can make the marshmallow mixture in the microwave, then instead of pouring it into a rectangular or square pan, you pour it into a round one. To make sure you can get it out of the pan after it's cooled completely, butter your cake pan well before pouring the Rice Krispie and marshmallow mixture into it.

Here's the tutorial.

3. Pretend you have a green thumb by assembling these incredibly realistic looking kokedamas.

They're not heavy to hang up, either, because they're packed with foam instead of dirt. Just be aware that craft moss can be just as messy as regular planting soil! As you wrap the moss around the foam ball and secure it, make sure to use the twine to tuck in any edges that are sticking up.

Here's how to do it.


4. Pretend that you're a world-famous artist by framing this paint-by-numbers printable.

Frame optional, but more cumbersome. Have all of the colors you need at hand when you start, because you're not going to be able to want to stop. Here's how to do it.
