I feel like every post I write is a result of me testing my own sanity. And it’s becoming a habit. Cam and I have been wanting to try a new slime recipe we saw online. He assumed we would do it one afternoon during nap time. That’s a safe assumption, seeing as the main ingredient is glue. Only today it was raining and everyone was getting a little stir crazy so I thought, what the heck, let’s all do it. What could go wrong by letting my twin 1-year olds play with glue? See, what I mean about questioning my sanity?
Well we, and by “we” I mean me, the kids, and my house; we all survived. And it was pretty much disaster free. Here’s a the recipe (from Elmer’s glue):
6oz bottle of glitter glue. (Or any glue – glitter adds some more fun)
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1 1/2 tablespoon of contact solution
- Empty the glue into a bowl
- Add baking soda, mix well
- Add contact solution, mix well
- Knead it. Play with it.
Make sure you have everything ready to go. Leaving the babies with a bowl full of glue while I helped Cam measure out the rest of the ingredients was the closest we came to absolute disaster. But once the slime is complete it’s pretty much mess free.
Like I said easy, peasy. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. You can make any day an adventure-filled one.
If you try the slime, leave a comment below and let me know how your slime-venture went!
