Recently, I had the pleasure of being an Editorial Contributor for Essence Wellness House Live. It was an amazing event that was held to help people get information about Covid 19, how to deal with it, and ways to get through this time of social distancing with ease. I was asked to present some of my favorite DIY activities to help parents keep their families busy and entertained. Instantly I knew that I wanted to feature DIY’S that use majority of items that are most likely already in your kitchen.
Making play dough is one of my kids favorite things to make in the kitchen. Right now they’re ages 5 and 2, and both of them equally enjoy making and playing with it. However, I know for a fact that older kids love playing with it too. Just give them some cookie cutters, and you’ll hit the jackpot of keeping your kids busy all day!Print
