Make stress balls out of balloons and either rice, flour, or beans! Take a balloon and stretch it out a little. Then fill it with rice, flour, or beans.( You can use a funnel.) You can decorate them in a million different ways. Lots of fun!
Quillo: quilt that folds into a cushion - I thought the days of wanting to make these ended when my kids grew up but they would be great in the living room or on a bed for an extra throw if someone were to get cold. Less clutter, no storage necessary.
Such simple items can be transformed into a cool activity that blends both science and art. If you have an empty water bottle, water, vegetable oil and food coloring, you can make this fascinating kid's activity! As a bonus, it also teaches kids about liquid density (and an explanation about that is included in this post!).
