Kids are very tactile, so play dough is the perfect craft to keep them busy. Once they’re finished mixing and stirring, they will play with the gooey stuff for hours, molding, squishing, and remodeling. Don’t bother going to the store and spending your money on expensive brand-name dough when you can make even better recipes at home. Thanks to the brilliant minds of bloggers, there is now edible play dough, delicious-smelling play dough, and vibrant play dough that will thrill the kids.

Edible Finger Paint

Whether we like it or not, kiddos love getting messy. If they’re going to do it anyhow, you might as well be confident in the materials with which they’re working. Make non-toxic (and even edible!) finger paints that will keep the kids safe and make for an easier mess to clean up. Keep the kids in the bathtub with special Bathtub Fingerpaints, where it’s simple to wipe up and hose down any “masterpiece.”

Do you think that part of a good childhood is being allowed to get messy?
