This is a fun, easy and quick craft that kids can do for Halloween using pipe cleaners. Your child can attach a little tag and give to his/her friends or attach a piece of candy and use as favors for school Halloween party. Once you finish, you can make a little mobile or garland with your pumpkins. Placing them around the house works too! For complete directions go to PBS Parents.

Has your child ever pointed out birds he sees and hears while you are out and about? You can help your child learn about birds by making a simple bird feeder to attract them. Over time, you and your child may observe birds that live in your area year-round or birds that are migrating from faraway places.
Helps with these skills: Observing; describing; comparing and contrasting
Age Range: 3-6 year olds
PBS Parents has an abundance of activities for you to do with your children and grandchildren.
This particular slime is also called Flubber, Gluep, Glurch, or Gak, and it’s made from glue, water, and the tiniest bit of Borax, a mild powdered laundry soap. (NOTE: Borax is soap and it’s toxic, so please use your best judgment if you choose to use this with young children.)
I wasn’t sure how messy this would get and set the whole project up in our big mixing tub. The best part? The ingredients don’t have to be combined exactly in order to get perfect results!
