RI PBS Kids Club is a FUN, SAFE place for your child.
Just as your child is growing by leaps and bounds, so is this RI PBS Kids Club Web site! You'll find fresh content for your child on a regular basis.
We've posted some great activities for children, but we feel some of them might need help or supervision from a grown-up. You will find those links mirrored here on the PARENTS page to give you a chance to review the activity and the instructions. Do check the activities page and coloring page for more things you can do with your child, or things you can print and prepare for your child to do independently!
Visit our Kids Club calendar page, too, for upcoming events. There will be special "members only" things to do, as well as general announcements of events sponsored by or promoted by our community partners. Most events will be free to attend, or offer discount admisson to RI PBS Kids Club members. And sometimes, public events will include a little something special for RI PBS Kids Club members who attend wearing their valuable member medal!
So, bookmark this site for yourself and your child, and check back often!

Bread Clay print-friendly
* stale white bread
* white glue
* plastic baggie
* Plastic bag for storage
Take a white piece of stale bread and mix one tablespoon of white glue in a plastic baggie and knead until bread absorbs the glue.
Take the clay out of the bag and knead until soft.
You can also add food coloring before you add the bread.
The clay will keep for several weeks in a plastic bag in the refrigerator.
Make different colored beads and string them together for a one-of-a-kind necklace or bracelet.
Finger Paint print-friendly
* 1 cup of instant laundry starch
* 5 cups of boiling water
* 1/2 cup soap flakes
* Powdered Tempra color
Mix starch with enough cold water to make a smooth paste.
Add boiling water and cook mixture until it is glossy.
Stir in dry soap flakes while the mixture is still warm.
Let cool and pour into jars. Add coloring.
Keeps for a week or longer with a tight lid.
Paper Mache print-friendly
* Large bowl full of one inch squares of newspaper
* Hot water
* 1/3 cup flour
* 1/4 cup water
* Plastic bag
Prepare a large bowl full of one-inch squares of newspaper as follows:
Tear off long inch-wide strip, holding as many strips as you can easily tear through. Then tear these off by the inch. Completely cover the scraps with hot water and soak overnight. Next, squeeze out excess water. Add one cup of paste to every three cups of paper and mix thoroughly. For paste, use the proportion of 1/3 cup flour to 1/4 cup water. To void a messy mixing job, you may place in plastic bag and knead. Mold into shapes and allow to dry. Paint and decorate as you desire.
