The kids love to play pretend and mix things together, so today I made kool-aid salt sand and we did pretend ice cream shop play.
All you need is salt, kool-aid and a little water.
I mixed 26oz of salt and packet of kool-aid and couple teaspoons of water(not too much) you don't want it runny.
Then the kids had bowls and scooper's and went to town. I also gave them some sprinkles to add to the ice cream play. Then after alittle play, I took out the silicone ice cream cones and they played with them.
Salt cost $.40 for 26oz
Kool-aid cost $.20
Hours of fun play for very inexpensive, plus they are using their imaginations for play.
