summary:

This simple kitchen gadget whips up hours of entertainment for babies.

Although an electric mixer may save you time in the kitchen, it doesn’t compare to an old-fashioned egg beater when it comes to amusing your kids. This culinary contraption does a remarkable job keeping little ones occupied while developing their fine motor skills. Fill a large plastic bowl with water and place it in the bath or outside on the lawn — anyplace where a wet mess won’t matter. Add a few dropps of dishwashing liquid or bubble bath. Show your child how to use the egg beater and let her whirl it around to create a big, frothy foam. Keep the fun going by adding a few drops of food colouring.
