So that website as the recipe and instructions. But you only need Borax (I had no idea what that was, but it's in the laundry detergent aisle. $5 for a big box), glue (we used clear, but you can use white as well, you just won't be able to see through it), food color, and water.
Seriously, it was an awesome craft. They were so impressed with me!
The kids were able to do each step, we just had to have a quick talk about not eating it...Maddie...
It looks like a huge mess, but you smash all together and it sticks...so you pick it up just like Play-Doh.
You can also smooth it out and when it gets thin you can see through it as clear as a window. It is seriously wild stuff. It had all of us, including me, mesmerized for a couple hours.
It met all of Maddie's tactile needs. When you leave it alone, it gets smooth and glassy, it melts into itself, and when you roll it into a ball...it BOUNCES!! So cool.
We only have two day left before the chaos of school starts. Payton goes back on Wednesday and I start next Monday. I'm trying to lay back and enjoy our last days, but anxiety is creeping in a bit and I'm starting to wish I could just start this so I can get it over with. I have one more project to finish this week for my nephew's first birthday. The countdown to Graduation shows 1 year, 8 months, 25 days, 1 hour, 50 minutes, and 29 seconds...again, providing it's a 12:00pm ceremony. :)
