    Default Home made kids toys/crafts

    I am thinking of starting a stall at our local market selling home made kids crafts and toys and was interested in seeing if there is a demand for this amongst other mums.
    My mothers group have inspired me by saying they love the idea of doing these activities with the kids but can't be bothered with the preparation.
    So would you be interested in the following and what prices would you think reasonable.
    All products home made, non toxic and natural.

    Hand or foot casting "stepping stones" taken in dough and dried out and painted.

    Play dough including sensory playdough with glitter.

    Edible finger paints

    Invisible pictures that you paint with water colors to reveal what the picture is

    Sensory bean bags with different colored and textured fabrics for throwing

    Large Beads made of dough for threading

    Magnetic Cardboard cut out figurines with a fishing pole

    Colored rice for gluing onto paper and making pictures

    All crafts supplied in glass jars to remain eco friendly

    Also though about in future having a tent for parents and kids to come in and do there things together so there is no mess at home.

    What's your honest opinions please?

    Great idea.

    I love the tent idea. I know if there is something like that my kids can do, I always let them. It is great when they have take home packs ready to go.

    Just remember to have good art smocks.

    Love love love it! Sounds like a great idea, particularly if it's marketed well, like funky labels on the jars etc.

    Sounds like a great idea

    I went to a school fair a few weeks ago and they were selling grass head kits (not sure what they are actually called) and it was a couple of zip lock bags with the foot of a stocking, eyes, grass seeds, soil and instructions. I thought it was a great idea and bought some for the girls. (realised that only makes sense if you know what i am talking about :what: )

    Hope it all goes well for you
