DIY Paintbrush Ideas for Kids using Household Items- I would use this in my science center. First I would have children predict what each of these "paintbrushes" would do, then students would use each of them and see if their predictions were right.
Quiet Boxes - for the child who no longer naps and for the mother who needs her sanity back. This is great idea even for older kids, for weekends & summer afternoons. We can all use a lil more quiet time!
