In honor of their 100th anniversary, the staff at the Boston Children’s Museum has compiled a list of their favorite 100 ways to play. Activities range from planting your favorite plant and watching it grow, having a dance party with your family, learning origami, and more!
The 100 Color Challenge remains a summer camp favorite! Make a grid (draw by hand or print off a 10x10 table), gather your choice of paint, and mix your way to 100 unique colors. This page has great math extensions, too!
Combine 1 cup of water + 2 TBSP dish soap + 1 TSBP glycerin for our official bubble solution recipe. Mix up a batch and blow bubbles using a straw on a wet table (patio tables are great for this!). Can’t find glycerin? Try another viscous liquid like corn syrup or go without – glycerin slows the evaporation rate so your bubbles are stronger and last longer.
