Children learn through play, and playing with food exposes them to new flavours and textures, broadening their palates.
Here is a brilliant idea, that lets kids experiment with food and flex their creative muscles:
And its really simple!
Ah British summers… wasps, rain clouds and anorak weather. No wonder the great indoors can be so appealing at times (especially with a lovely little treat from Cocoa Antics!)
While relaxing on the sofa sometimes sounds ideal, the kids might not appreciate being cramped indoors on a rainy day.
But what happens when all entertainment resources have been consumed? At least an hour of fun can be found in a surprising source:
Warm water, drinking straws and washing up liquid
The method is simple:
- Pour a little bit of washing up liquid into a bowl full of warm water (the amount of washing up liquid is completely up to you, more soap equals more bubbles!)
- Pour a tiny bit of the bubble mixture on a kitchen table (or any surface you don’t mind getting wet)
- Then, taking the drinking straw, put it into the bubble mixture and start blowing!
Now its your turn to experiment, making all sorts of soapy creations and having good, clean fun!
