Some days—often it’s a Saturday—you just need something different to do. That’s all there is to it—you’re bored.
Here’s a fun craft idea kids will enjoy and it’s easy to keep the supplies on hand so that you’ll be ready the next time boredom strikes your house!
Blue Food Coloring (or any other color)
Empty bottle from soda (2 liter, 1 liter or 3 liter)
Have your child fill a bottle halfway with cooking oil, and then add some water that has been dyed with food coloring (hint: use a funnel!) to fill it 3/4 of the way full. Replace the cap and glue it on with super glue. As you place the bottle on its side, the waves will roll gently.
Kids will have so much fun watching the surf….and adults will find it strangely relaxing, too!
