Around Valentine's Day, a recipe appeared on Facebook for slime. Did you see it, too?
It looked like it would be ooey, gooey fun to save for a rainy day. Such as yesterday.
With two girls in my care (and a husband who rolled his eyes upon my slime-making proclamation),
I got out the bottle of white glue, liquid starch, food coloring, spoons and water. Following the directions hastily written from the online source, we girls got to work.
Yes, it was a bit messy, but doing the stirring and mixing with the two bowls nestled in the sink prevented catastrophe. Lickety split we had sloppy slime success.
One would think this would be a disaster waiting to happen, but it wasn't! The slime, while wet to the touch, doesn't stick to hands and surfaces. It pours, stretches, flattens like a pancake and is really quite a tactile treat. And, because it was pink it was even more fun!
Now that Spring Break has arrived, it might be just the required "getaway" for
those on Staycation...or Grandma's/Grandpa's secret gooey weapon.
