For Malachi's birthday, he received some Magic Nuudles. They are basically like those biodegradable packing peanuts, except they come in lots of bright colors. You put them together by touching a noodle to a damp sponge, then it will stick to another noodle. Malachi and Lydia had a blast putting together creations, but they were most excited about melting them in the bathtub afterwards. We did find that they melt faster/better in warmer water, so the ones they tried to melt in the sink in cold water didn't disappear as planned. But the box is packed full of nuudles, and they only used a small portion of them, so this is a great toy for long winter days. And clean-up was both fun and easy for them. I didn't have to worry about figuring out where to put their creations, because they were so eager to melt them!
