Craft/experiment/busy ideas
April 30 at 7:55 AM
I am helping run a book sale for a group I belong to and we really want to try to help keep kids busy while moms shop. We are holding the sale at a bowling ally where kids can bowl free while moms shop. We also want to have a craft or experiment table. So I need ideas! It has to be something fairly simple, but enjoyable for a wide age range, and not too messy. Any ideas are welcome!

    Weaving on a cardboard loom (here, here, or here)

    It's always great to decorate hats or those thin wooden masks. You can get them pretty cheap at the dollar store.

    Since it's a book sale thing, you could have a book making table....blank paper, cardboard squares for the covers, yarn for the binding....

    I can't think of an experiment I'd feel comfortable doing in a bowling alley...

    I don't know, I think the venue is just begging for some physics experiments.  :)

    I thought of doing some bottles with little things inside, and handheld magnets do them to see what's magnetic and what isn't.

    I like your book idea!!

    Home made playdoh and take some home for $1.00 (to recoup some costs) in a baggie.
