Place milk in shallow dish- add drops of food coloring. Now grab a *magic* toothpick. What? You don’t know where to buy magic toothpicks?? Just dip the end in dish soap & touch the milk with it. Colors instantly shoot out at lightning speed creating a wake of rainbows! Try dipping the toothpick in the color first and then the milk and you’ll make rings. Do not drink the milk ;)

A calm down/time out "jar" in a plastic bottle - much safer for toddler tantrums. Also includes glue to make it take 5 minutes to settle.

Ready for some more summer fun with kids? These giant homemade bubbles are SO cool! Not only are they fun and super easy, they are made using just a few basic supplies & ingredients you probably already have on hand! My kids had an absolute BLAST!

Time-out bottles. Fill a bottle with 3/4 water, one bottle of glitter glue, & ultra fine glitter. Then send this bottle with your child to timeout and they can watch it settle to calm them. Once the glitter is settled their time is up!

Recipes for children's bubbles

Wet noodle is so fun. Watch this demo! Tape a cup full of water to the top of a pool noodle. I'd tape a "hold here" on the noodle. The kids race to pass it up and down the line without spilling the water.

How to Make Giant Bubbles (includes how-to for the bubble-maker plus a great bubble solution recipe). 10 cups of warm water (distilled water is best) 1 cup of Dawn dishwashing detergent (best to get the clear color) 1/2 cup of corn syrup (or glycerin, if you happen to have some)

monster bubbles 11 C water 4 C dish soap (not antibacterial) 1 C corn syrup

The title of the recipe says, The World’s Best Bubbles... must give this one a try!! we go through a lot of bubbles and corn syrup is easier to find than the glycerin I used last summer.
