This was supposed to be a super simple easy slime recipe but it completely failed for me. Jakob and I tried for 30 minutes to correct it but it just would not work. So this has failed and is the reason why Jakob made up his own slime recipe you can check it out here (Jakob’s Homemade Slime)
Jakob and I made a super simple playdough today. It is a really good playdough for toddlers since it is just two ingredients and safe to eat (it tastes nasty but won’t hurt them if they get a little in their mouth or if they lick it.)
Okay, guys, I sat down to test some DIY stuff and Jakob always likes to participate because he loves to get messy. Well, we tried to make a ‘simple’ slime recipe and it completely failed. (I’ll be posting the fail soon!) But that was not going to stop my Jakob. He said, “You know what mommy, a recipe just popped in my head! Let’s try it!” so we did.
This was 100% Jakob’s recipe and man, his homemade slime recipe worked! No one is more surprised than me. He asked me if we could post it to my blog so here it is.
Jakob’s Homemade Slime:
This is part two of Jakob and I’s ocean learning activities. This one was way more of a mess and a lot of fun to do. Again, it was very easy to put together. The hardest part was waiting for the Jell-O to set.
I decided to teach my boy about the ocean and we did two different activities. I will share this one today and the other one next week. So first up is the Ocean in a Bottle activity. We had so much fun but got covered in food dye.
I have a slight obsession with green tea. I could drink it all day long. So why not make a simple green tea sugar scrub!
I wanted something super simple and easy to make with my son today after dinner. So we decided on foam dough. It was easy to make and immensely fun to play with. We had a slight incident with the food coloring because my adorable 5-year-old decided that he would put a small piece of the dough in his hand and then drop WAY too much food coloring into his open hand. (see picture below! lol.)
