For the activity, I really wanted to do something the kids of different ages would like that wouldn't make too much of a mess. This epsom salt paint fit the bill! It's so easy to make - just stir equal parts of epsom salt and very hot water together. Then paint with the solution on black paper and wait for it to dry (this is when the magic happens!)  The solution actually crystallizes and looks just like ice crystals! by wanda

Fast and Easy Paper Mache Recipe is real easy to make. You simply mix equal parts of flour and water then add some salt and stir it up. I usually make a batch that has two cups of flour, two cups of water and 1 tablespoon of salt and mix it up. It makes enough for a nice pinata. :: Newspaper is the usual paper I use, but other papers give different textures. If you're planning on keeping your sculpture, adding some white glue helps to keep it from turning "dusty." by dale

Restoration Hardware Look Cupboard from Lilyfield Life Paint with two solid coats of ASCP French Linen. (you possibly could just do one coat but I always like full opacity). Once the paint was fully dry, Annie suggests you mix equal parts of grey and white and then water down with water until the paint flows freely and is a little translucent. by mildred

Emma: You know Jo wrote this incredible female role and I think unprecedented in the fact that she is not just an equal to the boys, but actually in some respects you can see that she’s a stronger fighter, she’s a stronger witch. And that just doesn’t happen in blockbuster movies. Women just tend to be sort of like, generally sort of pretty sidekicks and Hermione isn’t that at all. by katherine

Make constellations in a tube. I actually do this a lot when we have a spare tube for my kids and for my former daycare I would take dark construction paper scraps and just put it around roughly flat and use a pin to push in the outline of whatever the kids wanted...Great reward. They love it. Or you can, as I did for the older kids, let them select the constellation and I would punch it in. Great cheap activity to WOW any child. by Sandy May Jones
