Tennis Ball Friend
I love putting googly eyeballs on everything and having a green fuzzy tennis ball friend around the house just makes my life better every day. By just cutting a slit in an old tennis ball and adding a couple eyes, you can make a fun, cheap, and easy helper around the house. Add a suction cup on the back to help him hold stuff up, too.
