Pinterest: crafts, decorations, activities, recipes, and the motivation to do them, all in one place. So what's missing? An important safety check. Cutting your kid's hot dog to look like an octopus might be cute, but it's also a choking hazard for young children. Many do-it-yourself projects don't meet standards (cribs are a good example), and recalled products are often pinned with no information about the defect.
Pinterest is a fantastic source for both creative and practical inspiration, but review your boards for safety before putting those pins into action.
