I think everyday is a sticky day at my place!! So I knew the challenge from Unplug Your Kids wasn't going to be difficult to achieve!!
I spent the week thinking of various "sticky" things we could do... we attempted about 4 different things - Sticky was our theme for the week when it came to art and craft. About 2 of these turned out well enough to be shown here.
Heres what we did:
Now this was definately STICKY - In the process of whipping, pouring, licking fingers, cutting, eating.... my girls had about 3 baths - Sorry about the quality of the photos we seem to be doing our craft in the late afternoon and being winter the sun is gone - but perfect timing for this messy activity - close to bathtime!!
Measure out ingredients - Sugar, Water, Gelatin Start Whipping Whip Some More Whip some MORE And we got tired, so set it up to Whip itself Lick Fingers - that white goo is so Yummy Wait for it to set, then cut up EAT!! Finish Product
Made sticky tape balls
With Inspiration coming from here Instructables Sticky Tape Ball we attempted at making our own sticky tape balls. Apart from thinking about the wastage (and tape isn't that cheap here in Australia) I was focusing on the fine motor skills tactile experience that it was giving (hopefully) my girls. They loved these things so much one of them even went to sleep with the ball!!
Start with Sticky Tape and a marble Wrap! and Wrap! Wrap! and Wrap! Keep wrapping Finished Product
Hope you enjoyed our "Sticky" Situations!!
