Tips to Working with Young Children
I am a believer that these type of craft projects can be made by all ages and can even be a fun sensory activity. These are a few of the tricks I learned along the way.
- Have everything laid out and measured before you invite the kiddos over to help you. The little medicine cups (the kind that usually come with children’s liquid medicine) were perfect to pre measure the vinegar. The little cup is easier for the little ones to hold and pour than a spoon.
- Use snack size bags to mix everything up in. There was no worries with the younger ones if the lid was going to pop off and their version of mixing included tossing and dropping the bog. They could even squish the bag which is extra fun for sensory seekers.
- Use a variety of noodles. I let my children choose which noodles they wanted to put in their bags
