by Amy In this house we have been suffering from a spate of "I want to do something else" syndrome. Nothing seems to keep the toddler entertained for more than a few minutes at a time, and it doesn't take long before this Mommy runs out of energy to think of new things. We go swimming, we bake together, she takes gymnastics, but her energy is constant so when we're just home I have to keep trying to entertain her.
Today, after going through a few of our normal activities it was "something else, Mommy!" again, so I logged on to Pinterest to see what else we could try. I came upon this on my Crafts board.
Fun! Messy! Science!
So I got out my corn starch and the food colouring and we mixed it all together and keep the kid occupied for a good little while.
The truth is, it looks messy but it actually washes off hands quite easily. I haven't tried to clean the pan yet.
We'll probably be doing this again.
