Tube play is easy to make, inexpensive, and provides hours of meaningful playtime.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) May 27, 2014
Don't pour money down the drain with expensive toys. Tube play ideas and cute school book sandwiches have been released on Kids Activities Blog. Transform the kitchen window into a wonderland of learning.
Tube play time is a great way for kids to learn while being creative. The tubes will provide hours of fun playtime.
Simply purchase a variety of PVC pipes and joints together with a set of suction cups. The 2 1/4 inch wide pieces are the easiest to drill through, the easiest to pour through, and are still economical.
Drill holes into the pipe connectors. Make sure to match the drill bit to the suction cup “fitter”.
Make the hole slightly smaller than the connectors on the suction cups. Use a kitchen knife to help stuff the cups onto the PVC pipe fittings.
Once the suction cups are firmly inside the PVC tubes, press them onto the window. Provide a bucket of corn and a shovel and let the kids have a blast pouring corn down the drain.
The little books are so easy to make and can be personalized for any occasion. Ingredients needed to make the books are soft flour tortillas, white cheese slices, slices of deli meat, mayonnaise, and food coloring markers.
Cut the tortillas, deli meat, and cheese according to the dimensions on Kids Activities Blog. Since there will be a lot of leftover tortilla, turn these slivers into chips by baking them in the oven.
Follow the instructions to assemble the books. Since the tortillas tend to dry out prepare the sandwiches just a few hours before eating or wrap them tightly in plastic wrap. Be ready to make more sandwiches. The kids will ask for seconds.
For detailed instructions and to get additional fun ideas, check out Kids Activities Blog this week. Come get inspired to let the kids have a blast learning.
