Cuba, Kan. 785-729-3450,,,.,.11 Parents as Teachers By Amanda Anderson Stress buster for kids Children sometimes get wound up as the holidays approach. Here are some ideas to help them wind down. Gel Bags: fill a sturdy llip-top plas- tic bag partway with hatr styling gel. Tape it shut for good measure. Gel bags are relaxing to squeeze, poke and smooth out. Add a few drops of food coloring that your child can watch spread as they squeeze. Rocking and swinging: sounds like something you'd do on the dance floor, right? Not when you've got an upset child wrapped around your knees We're talking about using rocking chairs and swings, of course. The steady back-and-forth movement al- most always comforts kids. Corn starch and water: put equal amounts of corn starch and water in a plastic dishpan. Let your child stir it with his hands. Playing with this mix- ture has the same relaxing benefits as .finger-paint, but has a constantly chang- mg texture. It doesn't stain. Spills can be brushed off or vacuumed up after they dry. Washington firms plans expansion Two Washington, Kan., firms, Liq- uid Glass and Bradford Built, have announced expansion plans.
