1. FUN SQUISHY SLIME BAGS
Squishy slime bags are really fun, you can make them clear or you can add food colouring or put in little round paper circles from the hole puncher like I did.
How to make slime bags:
Mix 1 teaspoon of psyllium husk in with half a cup of cold water then microwave for 2-3 minutes until the mixture is nice and slimy.
leave to cool and then place a few tablespoons into zip lock bags and sprinkle in hole punch circles.
2. WIPEABLE PAINT SURFACE
This one is super easy :) Just place a piece of black paper inside the ziplock bag and then seal.
Let the kids paint on the bag surface and then wipe away clean after they are finished.
3. DIY COLOURED WATER BALLOONS FOR THE BATH
For some reason my kids love to play in the bath with the small zip lock bags. They fill the with water them smack their hands down making it splash out or make a little hole in the corner and squirt each other, sometimes I don't know why I bothered actually buying bath toys.
For this idea fill a zip lock bag with water and a drop of food colouring.
4. SMALL DIY WET WIPE BAG
I have made a large version of this and it works great. No soap residue to irritate skin and super handy to keep in your bag.
You will need:
4 or 5 paper towels folded to fit into zip lock bag (make sure you use a thick paper towel)
2 tablespoons witch hazel
1 drop of glycerine
1 drop of lavender oil
1 teaspoon coconut oil
Mix together and pour into the bag that contains the paper towels.
5. EASY KID FRIENDLY PIPING BAGS
These were great for my 3 and 4-year-old to use as you can seal the top and make the hole as small as you like.
Just make your favourite icing...
Spoon into Ziplock bag, seal the top and then cut a small corner.
Let the kids squeeze out the icing onto a cupcake.
