FUN FLOOR MATS: Kids can decorate their rooms with these clever and inexpensive rubber foam floor mats from Five Below in Fairview Heights. They connect like jigsaw pieces and come in five patterns/colors so a variety of unique “rugs” can be created and even rearranged. Each mat is $2 or buy two for $3.

GARDEN SIGNS: These oversized garden signs will definitely stand out in your yard. The frog is painted wood with a wooden stake and sign. The bright daisy behind it comes in orange or fuscia and is made of a treated burlap fabric. It sits on a metal pole. They are $9.99 each and from HereToday in Fairview Heights.
