Creative Crafty Activity for Toddlers/Preschoolers – Window Squishers

Do you have a little one at your house like I do? If so, try this homemade, quick and fun craft to give him or her a colorful and squishy activity that doesn’t cost a fortune or make a huge mess. Please forgive my poor photography skills…I hope they improve over time!

All you need is a bottle of corn syrup, food coloring and zip-closure sandwich bags in any size.

Squeeze corn syrup into a plastic storage bag, maybe about 1/4 full. Add a few squirts of food coloring and then squish it around until the dye is distributed. Suck as much air out of the  bag as you can, zip it closed and tape the top to keep it secure.

Tape your bags to a window that gets a good deal of sun, or better yet a sliding glass door, and let your toddler have fun squishing around the bright colors!

    This is such a cute idea! My almost 3 year old would probably pull them down and get dye everywhere – she’s just so forceful but I love the concept!

    I actually have been surfing on-line more than three hours lately,
    but I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It can be lovely value enough to me. I think, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as
    it is likely you did, the web is going to be a lot more helpful than before.
