Over the last few days I’ve been dubbed the entertainment committee for my five nieces and nephews. Sunday it was home made play dough day. Part of yesterday’s fun was slime. Have you made slime??
Here’s Matt showing off his yellow slime. He absolutely loved playing.
Stacey was really surprised that even though we added red food coloring, it only turned pink. That actually made her really happy.
Dawn played the longest but that is not surprise. She is a science nut.
Ryan was the last to join in. It’s hard to get a ten year old away from video games…finally the ow-ing and awing drug him away.
We never did get Zach to join us. He doesn’t seem to like gooey things and that’s perfectly okay.
It you have kids come to you house, and are willing to put up with a mess, give slime a try. It’s so fun. Here’s the recipe.
In one bowl mix:
1/2 c water
1/2 c glue
In another bowl mix:
1 teaspoon Borax
1 c water
food coloring of your choice
After both individual bowls have been mixed, pour one bowl into the other. Stir. Slime will appear. The water can be disposed of. As the kids work with it and squish it, it will become more solid. Dawn made a ball and was bouncing it. It easily killed an hour’s worth of time….
Tomorrow I think it will be clean mud. Tomorrow is also their day to go home.
