Slime City

Friday Megan didn't have school so we needed something fun to do.  I had watched Martha earlier in the week and she had made slime.  I thought that looked like something the girls would like to do.  So we did it.  It's just a little glue, water, food coloring, and the important ingredient, borax soap.  Megan made hers green and Mattey's is purple.  They had fun playing with it.  They held it in their hand and it would ooze out.  Mickey came home from work and had to make some.  I did too.  Sadly Kade is too little to play with it since you can't eat it.  Check out the pictures in the gallery.  Have fun if you decide to make some too.  Watch out it gets everywhere!

I'm not sure I felt that I "had" to make some, but I am glad that I tried it. The chemical reaction between the borax and the glue is very interesting. I think I'll stick to things that are less slimy.
