Backpack with Iron-on Patches
Kids pick out adhesive patches; Mom finishes the job with the iron. Plus: When you buy this colorful bag, another one full of supplies is donated to a student in need.

To prep handheld iron, turn on to the hottest setting (avoid using steam) and work on a table or other hard, heat-resistant surface (not an ironing board, which has too much padding).
Place patches where desired on backpack.
To apply each patch individually, layer pressing cloth between the patch and iron. Press down on patch for 30 seconds, covering with heat evenly.
