The latest activity I came up with to entertain my toddler involved water, food colouring, and cornstarch. I placed cornstarch with a little bit of water in one bowl for a squishy texture and just plain water in another bowl. I then provided my daughter with some scoops and spoons for experimenting. I sat on the sidelines and just let her do her thing but would occasionally add a drop or 2 of various colours of food colouring into the water or cornstarch for her to experiment with.
By the end everything was a gross colour and things were rather wet (you might want to strip your kid down for this rather than just rolling up their sleeves.) But all in all we managed to pass a good 45 minutes by with some awesome exploratory fun!
Check out that look of utmost concentration!
So proud of her concoction hehe.
What kinds of fun activities do you like doing with your toddler? Feel free to share! I'd love more ideas!!!
