Here is a quick and easy patriotic snack that you can bring to any party. Our red, white and blue patriotic pops come together in minutes and are so simple even a child can make them.
A few weeks ago I shared a Kids Window Art activity we did that involved the use of watered down tempera paint. I had some of that paint leftover and I am pretty frugal so I wanted to find another use for it. Since it was very runny, I thought it would be fun to pour and splatter it. I thought about doing this on an easel (which would yield similar results) but decided to use our slide to watch our paint drip. Slide painting is a great way for kids to explore the effect of gravity on paint. We used two methods of slide painting, dripping and pouring, and we loved the results of both.
Have you ever started out doing one thing and ended up with something totally different? That's what happened with our exploding milk experiment. It started off as a completely innocent experiment using milk, food coloring and dish soap and ended up as a bubbly, fizzy adventure. We did all of these activities at once but you can split them up over a series of days culminating with the exploding milk experiment.

Pipe cleaners are some of our favorite supplies for kids fun. I love how they come in a variety of colors, are fairly inexpensive (I've seen them at the dollar store) and are totally versatile. I also have great memories of creating pipe cleaner crafts when I was a kid. Well, pipe cleaners are still very popular all these years later. Check out over 20 ideas for Pipe Cleaner Crafts and Activities from my friends over at The PLAY Group.
