Whenever we do baking the children love to weigh out the ingredients, so this morning we did just weighing. I drew a blue line on the scales at about 40g, and we got various craft items together and counted how many handfuls of each it took to get to the blue line. The girls took it in turn to do the handfuls of ingredients, and Amber kept the tally on a piece of paper. The materials we weighed were: beads, wooden craft sticks, pipe cleaners, foam shapes, pom poms and little cut up bits of paper. The sticks were the heaviest, only needing one handful to get to the blue line, and the foam shapes were the lightest, needing fourteen :o)
