hot chocolate play sand.



We live in a winter state. Going out side daily is not an option for us. Playing with same toys day in and day out gets old fast. I like to stalk pinterest from time to time for activities to keep my sanity entertain my kids. I saw THIS idea a while back, and decided to give it a try.


It was a hit. They loved making it and loved playing with the sand even more. The clean up was do-able considering it came with 30 mins of play time.

Here is what you'll need:
2 cups of flour
1/2 cup of oil
1 package of hot chocolate

Mix all together and play.

Have you pinned and did anything lately?

i love the activities you engage your kiddos in and love that you're not scared of the mess. i need to be less uptight about that, but if it's to keep my sanity, lol, then i should then!

Oh! Thanks for sharing! This looks like a lot of fun, I want to try it with my kids. How big of a tub or container did these ingredients make? I would need enough sand to entertain as out 20 kids. Haha
