Bouncy Ball Blast

Got a child bouncing off the walls? Here’s a fun project that bounces back! This DIY bouncy ball kit is super fun, and easy to do. All you need is some water, a paper cup and a little bit of patience to wait for the mini-concoction to set. Your child can play chemist as he adds different colors of crystal grains to his bouncy ball mixture. It’s also great way for your child to learn his primary and secondary colors. (Alex Toys, $10.27)
