Earth Day Project | Piggy Bank Make a fun bank with your kids, this teaches them to reuse materials and to save money. Supplies: Plastic Container, Paint/Colored Tape, Craft Paper, Thread Spools or Buttons for legs, Pipe-Cleaner for tail *Parents help kids cut slot at the top with a knife and hold in back for tail.
The Foamerator, the most awesome homemade toy ever! Cut the bottom off a water bottle and cover it up with a damp piece of old terry cloth & secure with a rubber band. Then dip into bubble soap and blow into the mouthpiece--watch HUGE bubble snakes emerge! Easy video tutorial.
Such simple items can be transformed into a cool activity that blends both science and art. If you have an empty water bottle, water, vegetable oil and food coloring, you can make this fascinating kid's activity! As a bonus, it also teaches kids about liquid density (and an explanation about that is included in this post!).
