We've become big fans of floam here in the Early Literacy Department (seriously, you can't pry it out of our hands). That's why we're so excited to find this DIY Floam recipe from Parenting Chaos.
And if you're wondering what else we're into right now, check out this Kinetic Sand recipe, also from Parenting Chaos. Kinetic sand is great for bringing the beach inside, without the cleanup.
Both of these recipes will get those little hands working on finger strength, creativity and STEM.
