Fun with Biodegradable Packing Peanuts


Have you gotten a box in the mail that's full of biodegradable packing peanuts (the ones that dissolve in water)? Then, you have everything you need to keep your kids busy for hours.

What You Do:

1. Set your kids up with a pile of packing peanuts and one damp paper towel or sponge each.

2. Touch the end of one packing peanut to the paper towel or sponge. Then, touch it to another packing peanut to show them that they now stick together.

3. Encourage them to do the same to create sculptures, crazy hats or whatever else they can dream up.

Note to Parents:

Biodegradable packing peanuts are made from corn starch, so they are completely safe for your kids to play with.
