A fun, cheap, ooey gooey activity for the kids is: homemade SLIME!! Thanks for the inspiration, here!
This is a great little hands-on play time for the kids, (especially boys, I’m sure!) full of sensory fun! You only need 2 INGREDIENTS, plus a little food coloring. Here’s how: (please forgive the quality of my pictures, I took them with my phone.)
Its so easy and requires only 2 ingredients:
-2 to 3 bottles of clear Elmer’s glue
-liquid starch (can find on the detergent aisle w other starches. A half gallon jug was $3 at HEB grocery store.)
Mix equal parts glue and starch. I used 2 – 5oz bottles of glue which rendered 1 1/4 cup (10 oz), so I used 1 1/4 cup starch too. Pour together in a bowl and start mixing! You will likely have to use your hands and it takes a few minutes. When you get tired of it, plop a pile in a bowl for the kid and let them finish the job!
First the glue…
Then, Liquid Starch…
Now, get your “stir” on! Hands will be needed… Take your rings off!!
Its a little chunky and weird at first…just keep stirring.
Get your hands in there! We are making progress!
*you can use a few drops of food coloring dye (3 to 5 is sufficient). Have fun!
Watching the magic happen…
Have fun gettin’ your Slime on!! 🙂
