Happy Birthday Goo

Happy Birthday to my daughter! I can't believe she is 5 years old already!!!! 

When she woke up this morning I asked her what she wanted to do today. She immediately said, "A Craft"!
After sorting through some ideas that I have pinned on my Kids Crafts and Activities board on Pinterest, she decided on Slime from Tot Treasures.

There are only 2 ingredients!

1 1/2 cups of clear glue (I used 2 5oz. Elmer's Clear School Glue)
1 1/2 cups of liquid starch (I used Linit liquid starch)

1. Protect your table. (I always keep dollar store tablecloths on hand for projects like this)
2. Pour your ingredients into a bowl.

3. Mix with your hands.
4. Separate into different bowls and add food coloring, if desired. (You only need a little bit of food coloring.)
5. Mix with your hands until you get desired texture.

 This is where we ran in to a little bit of a problem.
Our "Slime" was more of a gooey blob and less slime-like than anticipated.

As we played with it did get more slime-like, but not like Tot Treasure's Slime.

Nevertheless we had a ton of fun with it!!!!

One of the greatest joys in my life is seeing my kids play happily together. My 3 year-old son played with this for about 30 minutes, and my 5 year-old daughter played with it for about 1 hour.

I am very happy to say that clean up is a breeze! Just throw the bulk of it away and with a little soap and water everything is back to normal.

This is definitely something we will be doing again. It is so easy to make and clean up, and most importantly a lot of fun!
