Box Theme

One of the best books! Imagine all the things you can do with a box? I thought about building blocks for this week's activities - lots of fun ways to make cubes.

Jello Blocks

Make the Jello using the Jigglers Recipe

12oz mix, 2.5 cups boiling water

Cut into shapes once set

Chia Slime Blocks

1/4 C chia seeds, 2 C water (add food coloring to water)

soak overnight

Freeze into cubes

(I didn't take them out soon enough so they stayed harder than I wanted, I think 2-3 hours before using would let them warm up enough to be a bit more slimey)

Unifix Cubes

some kids mixed them in bowls

some stacked them to make towers

Cardboard Packaging

I hid dinosaurs in the bin which was a fun "hunt"

Just really cool packaging material I wanted to try out - kids seemed to like it!

Painting Ice

Just some ice cubes and paint; it's fun to see how it changes as the ice melts


Tons of boxes I thought they might stack and build with, but, all they wanted to do was paint them!
