Kids Can Do: Squishy Bags

What is Kids Can Do? We know that children often get the most joy from little things such as sifting through a bowl of dry macaroni or playing with empty cereal boxes. That's why we share our "kid ideas" on that are educational, practical and easy. They are made with common household materials that you may already have on hand and don’t require much preparation or expense. Here's one that is super easy and fun for the little ones!

Squishy Bags: In a sturdy freezer bag, put 1/2 cup corn syrup with a bit of food coloring. Blue, purple and green work best for a calming effect. Secure bag with packing tape along opening. Allow your little one to squish it around, mixing the color throughout. Talk to your child about how their body heat warms the bag. You can also use 1/2 cup of hair gel and food coloring.
