A Kid Friendly Way to Use Up Your Old Spices
As my twin 4 year olds and I were sitting at home looking for a way to spend this Veteran's holiday at home we stumbled into my spices. If you have old spices at home that you want to get rid of a fun idea is to do "science experiments" in the kitchen. We mixed water with all kinds of things then added a little oil, honey, etc.
Then we stuck everything in the freezer. Some of the concoctions are on paper places with the spices stuck in them, others are in glasses so we'll see how the ice forms.
It was a good way to kill an hour or so and the girls thought it was pretty cool, plus you can talk about how the things mix and how the different spices look and what sticks better or dissolves better. It was a lot of fun.
Good ideas thanks for sharing!
As a mom of twin girls and as a teacher, I love this tip! Hooray for learning disguised as fun!!
