I placed a stainless steel bowl on the kitchen table, along with a measuring cup, food coloring and a box of cornstarch. When Carter saw this, he was quick to get to the table.
Carter poured in the cornstarch and water. He chose green food coloring, so he squeezed some into the mixture. He started to mix the ingredients together with his hands; his expression was priceless. The quicksand goes from goopy liquid to dry powder and back when turning it over and over in your hands.
This kept him entertained for quite awhile! I was able to get some dishes done and then I joined in on the fun!
