What a fun general meeting we had this week when Hilary Feldman came to teach us a little “Kitchen Science” and showed us different activities and “experiments” we could do with our preschoolers – especially on those cold, rainy days – using simple ingredients that we already have in our kitchen!
One recipe for fun is taking some cornstarch, mixing it with water and letting the kids go at it. They can manipulate it into a solid ball and then once they relax their hands, the substance oozes through their fingertips…a hit with most preschoolers I know. It only comes with one warning and that is to be sure not to wash it down your kitchen sink. It may not be good for the pipes, but it’s good for some gooey FUN!
