Simple Ideas That Are Borderline Crafty – 34 Pics

Homemade ice chalk is the perfect art, sensory, and science activity to keep the kids occupied on a hot summer day.

Instead of buying beads-1 c. pasta (per color) + 2 T. rubbing alcohol + 2-3 drops food coloring = colored pasta beads

Fill your ice cube trays with water, adding a drop of food coloring to each section. When frozen, these can be popped out and put in bath water. They’ll have fun “chasing” them around in the tub and trying to grab them before they melt.

Draw a picture with glue, sprinkle salt, dip a paintbrush in water and food coloring and touch it to the salt...kids will be mesmerized.

Super cheap and easy kid activity that will entertain for 30 minutes or more! Fizzy colored "sand." If I can do it, you can do it!

LIQUID SIDEWALK CHALK: Mix 1 cup of water with 1 cup of cornstarch. Then pour it into muffin tins or small cups & add food coloring to make the colors you would like.

Printed these the second I pinned them. My kids went crazy! I haven't heard a peep from them since they left with the papers in hand. Cool coloring pages for creative kiddos #coloringpages

HOW TO MAKE THE FACEPAINTS: Mix together two heaped teaspoons of cornflour/cornstarch with one teaspoon of baby lotion. Add a few drops of food colouring and mix together well until you have reached the desired consistency. For a thicker paint add more cornflour/cornstarch and to make it runnier add more baby lotion (alternatively a few drops of water could be used).

Salt painting. Make a glue design on dark paper, coat with salt, gently touch the salt with watercolor and it spreads... so fun!

Another awesome idea using freezer paper. Have kids draw on non-shiny side and then make their art wearable. Gift idea and also just an idea for their everyday wear!

Buy a white plate ($1 store) and let the kids make a picture with sharpie pens, then bake @350 for 30 minutes.
