Apparently there is this book called Kid Concoctions that has tons of cool "recipes" of things you can make at home with your kids. I had a handout from a friend and we experimented with GAK:
1 c. white school glue
1 c. water
1 1/3 c. warm water
4 tsp. Borax laundry booster
Poor Solution A into B. Drain excess water.
This stuff was a hit a with Liddy. It's comparble to slime, but it's more a solid than a liquid.
So, while I was on a roll we make homemade playdough. I found a recipe for a good kind that has cream of tarter and heats on the stove. Two thumbs up on that too.
Maybe this was an obvious thing to do at home, but I guess I never thought of it. It definately make our day brighter...and everyone happier. I went ahead and bought the book on Amazon. I think with shipping I spent a whopping $5!
