Crafty Kids - Bounce!

Okay so this is a bit of cheat (according to my own rules), but I had to make this a Crafty Kid project just so that I could share the fun... A couple of days ago MG and I had a blast making a bouncy ball from a kit. Who knew these things existed?! Well not me. Auntie Lindsay sent it cause she's awesome and cause MG is lucky to have her!

So I had my doubts about whether it would work or not, but it was amazing. All you do is click the mold together, pour in the fun colored tidbits (I'm sure there's a more official name for them, I just don't know it), let it sit in water for 10 minutes and ta da! It was the perfect amount of involvement combined with wait-time for an almost 3 year old. And I got to feel like a mad scientist minus the crazy hair. Oh and bonus, it actually bounces just like those super high bounce balls we had when we were little! If you're looking for a fun party favor, birthday present or rainy day distraction (for young & old), this is definitely a happy solution. I think they could even pass for office party supplies, hmmm...

oops, I almost said "happy bouncy balls" but that doesn't quite work does it?! yikes. How about:
- BOUNCY HAPPINESS - Much better!
