Sometimes, every class needs to break from the usual grind and have some fun. We have a pretty steady schedule here at home and today I felt like our hearts all needed a bit of creativity thrown in. We made homemade slime, which is different from the slime I played with as a kid. This slime was a solid when it was on the counter and when we held it, it ran through our hands like water. We were constantly amazed at how it felt so solid when we squeezed it and then it dripped like a liquid onto the counter.
It was so easy to make (1 part water to 1 part corn starch) and you should try it with your kids. Mine were enthralled with it for at least 40 minutes. That means that the mess was totally worth making if it kept them occupied for that long. :)
Let me know if you try this, or if you have a different recipe that I need to try.
