Edible Crafts for Kids
I have three girls and we both work full time. When they are home it is nice to be able to keep them busy with some edible playdough, or a fun “build your own lunch” idea. It makes those yucky days more pleasurable.
Edible fingerpaint is really fun and only needs 2 ingredients for lots of entertainment! All ages enjoy this, even teens. A fun birthday party activity that is super cheap and non toxic so even the youngest guests can enjoy it.

- If you’re itching to get outside, find an indoor playground in your neighborhood.
