Random Mommy Tip #4

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 2:34 PM
Flour Power - It started out as a science project. I was teaching my 5-year-old about germs and washing hands. I let her play with some flour (germs) and then gave her a carrot to eat - without eating any germs. The lesson took (I think), but more than that we found a new form of entertainment. My 3-year-old joined in and they played with the flour, cups, spoons, etc. at the bar for over an hour while I cooked dinner. It gets a little messy, but I have to clean up the kitchen and sweep after meals anyway, so once in a while we get out the flour and tools and they "cook" while I do. Recently my 14-month-old also joined in. They love it and it's easy, cheap, creative entertainment!
