Winter craft

Well, the warm mid- winter temperatures were just a little treat. Today was winter’s reminder that it is still March, there was even flurries today!!

So that meant the kids could not go outside to play… but it’s Friday?!?! So that meant a craft! Why not try something that is all over YouTube and the Net? Yup, fluffy slime! There’s a lot of variations out there, but here’s the combination that worked the best.

In one bowl: one cup of hot water and one tablespoon Borax. Stir until the Borax is dissolved and the mixture looks clear.

In a second bowl mix the following together:

1 cup glue 

Half cup water 

3- 4 cups shaving cream ( any brand is fine)

2 tablespoons of contact lens solution 

Once you’ve mixed them together, add 2-3 tablespoons of the Borax mixture one tablespoon at a time . Once it starts to form a ball and not stick to the sides of the bowl, you’re done!!

Time to play!!

We tried barabsol shaving cream and Pure silk shaving cream both work great and can be found at the dollar stores. Bonus the Pure silk smelled nice.

Tried it also with glitter glue, it worked okay but we did have to add a little more glitter. Side note: the glitter will be on your hands as well.

If you’d like to have a colored fluffy slime , food coloring works great. Add it before you add the Borax mixture.

Have fun!!
