Before I got this book, when I wanted to try an activity, I found I would spend too much time on my phone searching for something to try, then reading the comments which would often discourage me from trying it. Since this book arrived 2 weeks ago, I have found it so much easier to pick and activity and get started, and almost every day since we have tried something new
Our favorites so far are..
COLORED RICE - She now plays with for over 20 minutes while I enjoy my coffee in the morning... 20 minutes in Toddler time is like a year! It took a couple times to teach her to keep it in the bin, but it's nothing our vacuum doesn't fix in a few minutes. She uses kitchen stuff in the bin with it, measuring cups, funnel, spoons, etc. I didn't buy anything, I had it all on hand.
Love the blog, love the book even more.
CLASSIC PLAY DOUGH - she loves sticking noodles, Popsicle sticks or other things into it. I love it doesn't smell super gross like the store bought stuff.
FOAM CUT OUTS ON THE WINDOWS - Can't actually remember what it is called int he book. But it requires foam sheets and water, so easy and works like stickers without the mess. We also use them in the bath.
If you aren't sure, check out the blog and try a couple of things first www.funathomewithkids.com
I plan on buying these as christmas gifts for a few people, highly recommend!
If anyone finds Water Colors for a good price let me know, they are four times the price here in canada compared to the US, it's very aggravating.
LOVE the sections on slimes, dough, paint and sensory baskets. all ingredients that are easy to find at home or at local grocery stores or dollar stores. very excited to try these out with kiddos.
