Summer is in full swing and the kids are out of school for a few more weeks. Here is a fun activity to entertain them rain or shine....
I believe there is an aspiring little chef in every child just waiting to come out. So why not let them get creative in the kitchen? It doesn't even require a hot stove!
Have them make "mud" cookies. Even the idea will make em' smile (just make sure they know they're just for play, not for eating!). Lend them all your cookie shapes or skip the cookie cutters altogether and have them mold their own cookies. The best part of this game is that it takes place outdoors and involves making mud. A little dirt, a small bowl of water, and what child isn't in heaven getting dirty and making "food" at the same time? You won't be turning on your stove, but you will be doing some laundry unless of course, you wrap them up in a chef's apron for the right touch.
If you get the childhood memories going in your head, I am sure you will join in the fun too. Just think! You can have that mud spa treatment you have always dreamed of.
