Easy and fun.Velcro + popsicle sticks make for great quiet time or restaurant activity. Put velcro dots on the ends of popsicle sticks. Kids can make letters or shapes over and over again. I found velcro dots at my local dollar store.
~ glow stick xylophone ~put the glow sticks in cups of water and an aura comes off in the dark, when you tap them ~ probably the coolest thing ever ~ this would be a fun activity for our first grade SOUND unit ~
