It has been a rather rough week around our house, so after dinner last night I thought we needed to do something fun. In this case, fun = slime!
I came across a super easy recipe for making slime at home over on Our Best Bites a few days ago and decided we just had to make some. We already had all of the ingredients except for the Borax so I picked up a box when I was out running errands yesterday to have it on hand.
The kids both helped pour the ingredients in and then we watched as the liquid changed into clumps, and eventually a nice ball of slime. They thought it was SO! COOL! and played with it for quite a while afterward.
We’ll definitely be doing this again. Poor Evie was not happy with her brother’s color choice, so we’re going to have to make some red (or maybe PINK) slime next time around. I want to try it with the clear glue that it mentions in the post but we didn’t have any of that at home.
For those following along regarding the bullying that I posted about yesterday, I was able to talk to Zach’s teacher this morning and am feeling much better about things. She already has plans for making some changes in the classroom (seating arrangements, etc.) that should help. Also, he’ll be sent to the restroom by himself rather than in a group to alleviate problems happening there. She expressed some concerns about things he is doing in class that we will both work on with him. All of the changes will take time, but I feel like we are moving in the right direction. I’m very thankful that he has a teacher that cares and wants him to be successful at school. I’m also very thankful for all of you, my incredibly supportive friends and family. Your comments both here and on Facebook really helped me get through the day yesterday without pulling my hair out.
