My sweet children love to do crafts with me and when I have a spare hour - (said with a sarcastic tone and a smile) - I like to look up my Pinterest Board titled "To Do Another Day
" and see if there is something I can throw together for my little ones to do.
Unfortunately, not many crafts can be done with a six-year old, a three-year old and a year-and-a-half year old all at the same time and that keeps them all interested.
This one however, was a hit with all three.
The original blog for this is here: Play Create Explore
These cotton ball rocks can be made in just over an hour, and got everyone involved. They were both very messy and exciting to make, bake, and crack open.
My 6-year old was enthralled with the possibilities of what these rocks could be used for. He put one on a stick and I shouted out loud, "that looks like a cake pop!"
I wonder what other crazy pranks could be made up from these....
