It's Playtime: Old Concepts, New Tricks

I love when I find a new way to use an old concept don't you?  So often we come across the same old thing all over the interent and while it may be a good idea (thus everybody doing it), sometimes it's nice to go, "Oh wow!  Why didn't I think of that?  I do that activity all the time and if only I had changed it ever so slightly...."  You get my point, right?  That's what's going on this week on It's Playtime!

Looking at this picture from Play Create Explore you might think, "oh, that's cloud dough," but not quite.  This Fluffy Stuff is a slightly different recipe.  Use it and create your own summer snowball fight!

At this point I think we all know what a water wall is, right?  Why not take the same concept and create a bead/ball run like the Russian blogger from The World of My did?  She used plastic bottles to create a Rotating Ball Game, fun for grown-ups and kids alike.

 Puddles are for jumping and it can be fun to create Art in the Rain, but why not use some dried Tempura and create some Rainbow Puddles?  This fun idea from Play Create Explore will have your kids excited to mix some colors and create outdoor art.
