Insulated alligator clips make better bib clips
Our 3-year-old is getting too long in the torso for our previously great bib at home (once it drags through the food, it becomes a hazard in itself!). I liked the notion of a bib clip, which theoretically converts any dish towel or restaurant napkin into a bib, however, a quick look at Amazon ratings tells you that most of the brands out there are cheap pieces of crap, and one hates to spend $10-15 on something that won't hold up or that barely works.
So, the hack: get a set of basic alligator-clip cables (12-18 inches) from the hardware store. They're a fraction of the price (here 10 for under $5) and so it's easy to have a few in likely locations -- bag, kitchen, Grandma's. if length is an issue, a bulldog clip or even a paper clip is fine for sizing. Voila!
Oh, yeah! One thing to note: that insulation looks pretty fun to chew. I'd therefore use this hack with older kids only.
