Have a bored kidlet and nothing exciting to put together for fun? Pull out the neglected old crayons and entice them into some waxy fun!
What you need:
*masking tape or rubber bands
Set out your paper for your wee ones to draw on and bundle up the crayons in groups of 2 and/or 3 using masking tape or a rubber band. Using the classic ice-cream cone grip, have your kidlets scribble away not with one, but two or more crayons at a time! Enthusiastically tell them how exciting their scribbles are, point out the multiple lines and let them see how many crayons they can bundle up and draw with.
The fun may not last for too long but it just may be enough time for you to get a meal ready or a phone call made!
In the states, now is the perfect time to stock up on crayons what with back to school and all that happening.
