Magic Milk Paint idea from Modern Parents Messy Kids. This is another one of those awesome 'science meets art' activities for children, and you only need milk, dishwash and food colouring to do it. Looks fun :)
In a small Ziplock bag: cup half and half (milk works too), 1 Tbsp sugar, 1 tsp vanilla. Insert that bag into a gallon Ziplock filled with ice and salt. Shake the bag for five minutes. Then remove the smaller bag which should have turned into ice cream!
Muffin Pan Fun and other toddler activities months old ---> O'Courter: When he was around 9 months old, I gave my son plastic Easter eggs and a mini muffin tin. He had a lot of fun sorting them in the tin.
