I posted this on my kids' blog and realized I should have posted it here. Oopsie. Oh well. It's good enough to post twice. ha ha!
I got this idea from a blog I read: My Charming Kids. Put pasta and/or rice on a cookie sheet. The kids had fun playing this morning and even got creative. They kept running to get new toys to play in it. It was pretty easy to clean up too! Yay for great ideas!
