From Puffy Paint to Laser Mazes

I saw a tweet about a construction toy called, “Brackitz” that intrigued me the other day.  I followed the link to their website, and clicked on video that shows their product being featured on the Today Show.  It looks like a great addition to any Maker Space.  As I watched the video segment, though, I saw some other wonderful suggestions for sparking the imagination of young children. Meredith Sinclair, who blogs here, showcases some fun indoor activities that you may not have seen before.  Her creative ideas include: making your own puffy paint, injecting water colors into a jello mold, mess-less finger painting (genius!), and a “laser” maze you can make with things in your own home.

Watch this short video, and then head over to Meredith Plays for even more reasons to wish you were a child again!
