Seriously, kids activities don't get much easier than this one.
All you need is a bin, water, dry oats and a whisk. My son grabbed a measuring cup and I added a lemon squeezer and a spatula just for fun. Oh, I also recommend a towel, mat or small tarp to place under the bin. This one can be a bit messy. I also added some spice to the mix (or my son did). We added traditional flavors with oats, a little cinnamon and brown sugar. Yum.
The texture is mushy and potentially ‘gooey'. My two year old had loads of fun whisking the oats and water using his imagination to tell me what he was cooking up.
This activity helps develop sensory, fine motor and practical life (whisking and food) skills.
