Saturday Smile: Going Green (and Yellow and Blue and Pink)

While little brother Cole was in the hospital getting tubes put in his ear so that everything he hears doesn’t sound like it’s coming from Charlie Brown’s teacher, his two older sisters spent the day at our house. We had a busy time, starting our day with a visit to Target to procure the mandatory Play Doh…..

When all was said and done, however, Play Doh was unnecessary because the two persuasive girls talked me into letting them make slime. Water, Elmer’s glue, food coloring, and a teaspoon of Borax. It takes about 10 minutes and provides hours of fun. I’m not sure exactly why, but they squeezed their slime for hours…..

We went to see Despicable Me 3, where we were joined by Dagny and Maggie Faith. Upon returning home, those two had to make their own slime as well. Dagny is a master, having even convinced her teacher to allow her to teach a class after school last session called Slime Time, during which she showed the attendees how to make all manner of slime. She can even make bubbles…..

When they all went home, slime carefully placed in little baggies, I spent the rest of the evening cleaning up insidious green food coloring which had somehow escaped from Kaiya’s slime. No matter. For pennies, they had hours of fun.

Have a great weekend.
