  • I saw a really cute way to make your own non-toxic lava "lamp" All you need is a water bottle, some cooking oil, some food coloring & some alka selsor. Fill the plastic bottle about 2/3 with cooking oil, mix water & food coloring in a measuring cup & pour into the bottle of cooking oil. Then add the alka selsor to get the lava flowing. It's really cool & you can keep adding alka selsor as needed to keep the lava moving.

  • Just let them play! I never structure my kids time when their friends come over and they seem to have a blast. Kids love playing with other kids toys!!

  • My dd and her friends always loved baking/decorating cupcakes/cookies. Other than that, we didn't have a whole lot of structured play time - I just let them play with her toys or if they wanted to go out on the swingset or trampoline I took a book and went out on the deck.

  • Play with dolls, bake brownies. I usually just let them play and only step in if they seem bored.
