4. I-Spy Bottle
I have to admit, even I would enjoy shaking and twisting the bottle to find new treasures! Perhaps I’ll make one for myself. 🙂 This easy project is fun to make, and would be especially nice for the back seat of the car to keep the kids entertained while driving. Simply fill a bottle full of dried rice or beans, along with a handful of charms or little items like coins, pom poms, beads, etc. Just don’t forget to securely glue the lid on! I found this idea here, but it looks like the website is down for now.
5. Balloon Bowls
Can you believe this is just made out of confetti and mod podge!? Even if you don’t have confetti, you can easily make your own by cutting scrap paper into small pieces (or by using a hole punch). Glue is also another alternative in place of mod podge. You might already have all of the supplies needed at home! Go get the full instructions here.
6. Finger Knitting
The reasons why finger knitting is so awesome: it doesn’t require any tools, it’s simple enough for children to do, and it’s a fabulous way to pass the time– all you’ll need is yarn! There are so many things you can do with the strips, such as head bands, scarves for American Girl dolls, or anything else you can dream up! Go get the complete step-by-step instructions here.
