Here are some quick, easy kids activities ....
1. PAINT IN A BAG
This is a great mess-free fingerprinting activity that can be used over and over again. Simply squirt some paint into a zip lock bag, squeeze out the air, and hang up onto a window .. Presto!
2. BUBBLE SOCKS
You will need a sock, some dishwash solution, an old bottle with the base cut off and optional food colouring
Slide the sock over the bottle, and seal with sellotape ...
Squirt some colours onto the sock face, and dip the bottle into the solution. Blow into the pouring end and you will make a long rainbow of bubbles!
3. BAKING SODA VOLCANOES
Here mix vinegar with food colouring in different containers. Empty a tub of baking soda into a large tray and allow the kids to spoon in the coloured vinegar. The mixture will bubble and rise, my 3 year old loved this one!
4. GLOW IN THE DARK BATH
The title says it all... so simple! Poundland sells packs of glow sticks and other such illuminating things, switch off the lights and blackout the lights.. add some bubbles, and let them have a long fun bath.
5. SPAGHETTI HOLDERS
Let the kids paint and an old Pringles tin.. and label it. Its the perfect size to store a lot of spaghetti!
