So, who remembers spending hours playing Foosball as a kid. No need for a full-size table. The nice thing about this “mini” project is that you probably have all the needed materials at hand. Kirby is sure that your kids will be more than happy to help you in building this portable toy for endless hours of fun! From U Create.

Have you been hesitant to make slime for your kids in worry that they might sneak a taste? Do the ingredients of traditional slime recipes set you back a bit? With this new edible slime recipe you can put all those reservations aside and let your kids escape into OOEY GOOEY bliss. Also from Growing a Jeweled Rose.

Scavenge your yard, grab a flower pot you probably have on hand, and let the kids get some dirt under their fingernails as they build their very own fairy garden! From See Jamie Blog.

And, of course, once the bank is bulging with money and coins, don’t forget to come visit the Credit Union to set up their very own Kirby Kangaroo savings account.  Project from Fireflies & Mud Pies.
