Seriously my friends, I have NEVER had more fun with a "substance" in my entire life. Many of you know this activity through grade school. Let's just say my grandschool was mega boring because I never got to make this awesomeness. This "awesomness" that I am referring to is called Oobleck. Apparently I am way behind in the "times". I'm working on it.
For those of you that have never heard of Oobleck, I totally encourage you to make it. It's super easy and it's pefect for those days where you are looking for that special indoor activity.
For those of you that have children old enough to explain things to you, this would be a great time to have your kids try and explain the texture of this. It's nearly impossible, but there is no wrong answer.
Not only was this extremely easy and cheap to make but I'll be honest in saying that it was an even easier clean up. I grabbed ONE wet paper towel and wiped up the mess on the floor, the tray and his clothes. It wiped up so easy. Run hands under water and it washes off like no body's business!
Now go... have some Oobleck fun!
... And we finished it off by watching a Baby Einstein.
Come to think of it, I don't know the last time I played in a Fort, but it was awesome and I am already looking forward to doing it again.
We have been up to all sorts of other fun hands-on activities that I will be sharing in the coming days!
What are some of YOUR favortie Snowed In activities?
I'm all for saving a buck, how bout' you? Yea, I figured as much. Who would ever "want" to pay full price for something when they can get it or make it on the cheap. I agree.
The other day while flipping pages in my beloved Pottery Barn catalog I saw these two preeties. I loved them. I just didn't love their price tag. What I loved most about the one on the left, the lantern style, was that it was simple, open and that it could hang. The votive holder was calling my name simply because of the bird on top! Love!
