Reuse your Fidget toys
Another weekend of social distancing calls for a little creativity to entertain the keiki at home. Try the social media feel of doing Pop-It Chocolate Bars. This Tik Tok trend uses these colorful sensory toys called Pop-Its that we’re sure a lot of your kids have been hooked on to the violin lately. All you need is chocolate, candy coated chocolate chunks, and 5 minutes to create personalized candies.
Decorate with dinosaurs
If you’re strapped for keiki craft ideas, the local “mom girl” and founder of Dino Flora is here for you! Her DIY Felt Dino Sewing Kit ($ 28) provides all the materials you need to create a Brachiosaurus covered in fuzzy plants. With eight color choices of felt block printed with hand-carved stamps, each dinosaur is unique. Note: This activity is ideal for artisans aged 12 and over. However, younger artisans will love to decorate their school supplies with crazy and colorful stickers depicting dinosaurs living the O’ahu way of life ($ 3 to $ 18).
