  • Forget losing your marbles – gain some! Use Sculpey to have the kids create their very own marbles. It heats in the oven and becomes hard, then once they're cool, the kids will have marbles! 
  • Those marbles will come in handy if you have an old swim noodle that you can cut in half lengthwise. Have a marble race by holding up the noodle and sending the marbles down the middle, or make your own racetrack! 
  • I scream, you scream, we all scream for homemade ice cream. Make your own frozen treats. Use one cup of flavored coffee creamer of your choice, then add 2 tablespoons of sugar. Put them in a quart-sized Ziploc bag and seal. Place the bag inside a gallon-sized Ziploc bag. Add lots of ice to the large bag, plus a few tablespoons of rock salt. Now comes the fun part – have the kids shake the bag for a good 10 minutes or so. Place in the freezer if not frozen enough, then serve!
