Kids are messy, it's just a fact of life. If your kid is prone to spills during meals, this DIY suction cup bowl lets them eat, keeps their dishes in place and gives you one less thing to worry about. First of all, this bowl is meant for young kids who don't throw their food, but still young enough where some mess is expected -- it's no excuse not to teach your kids to not make a mess while they eat. You'll need a plastic bowl or plate, two small suction cups and some super-strong glue. If needed, cut off the nubs on the back of the suction cup to create a flat surface to glue the suction cups to the bottom of the bowl. Let them dry for 24 hours, then use as normal.
You might want to be careful about putting this in the dishwasher, although it is easy to repair or make again. Make a whole set of bowls and plates so that you don't run out, or even apply this technique to snack containers to keep your car spill-free, too.
