bath-tub crayons-not just for the tub
Sometimes you just can't include the kids in cooking and you might need them out from under-foot for safety reasons. M enjoyed using her bathtub crayons to draw in the sink. She stood on her step-stool and enjoyed making designs and then washing them away again. Consider a smock or bib for this one. You could also draw on some kitchen plates and wash the designs away if you'd prefer to have the kids with you in the kitchen, or worry that your child might not be able to resist the bathroom walls next to the sink! Maybe have them try out some designs and take pictures. Then take the kids over the weekend to one of those pottery places that lets you paint and fire real plates for a keepsake or gift for Dad or Gramma.
