Before iPad games trumped sidewalk chalk and elaborate water parks became the new community pools, there was such a thing as simple fun at home. Throw it back old school with imaginative play reminiscent of your childhood with these nine engaging projects from our friend Asia of Fun at Home with Kids. From creating rainbow soap to edible finger paint, your kids will delight in how much fun they can have sans a power cord.

If you don't trust your little one with real paint, but still want to encourage hands-on creativity, this is the project for you. Create scented edible fingerpaint with just a handful of ingredients. Take a look at the recipe that uses natural dye by clicking here.
