I feel like this is going to be a super fun summer! I've already been to Jackson hole and Monterey and now I'm getting ready for our mops retreat that will be tomorrow night at my house. (It's 11:00 and I am taking a break from cleaning my kitchen. . . steaming the microwave). So, if you don't see a lot of posts from me in the next few weeks. . . . just know that we are having fun and hoping that you are too!
I was just mixing the cornstarch and water up in paper cups but the kids just kept spilling them. So, tonight I tried an old muffin tin. It worked way better and I got to experiment with colors! So much fun! With a one year old, it eventually ended up all over, but it lasted much longer.
This is a super cheap recipe that you can do with kids from ingredients you probably have in your own home.
Here's the recipe:
1 to 2 tsp. cornstarch for each muffin tin . . . I just eyeball it
water. . . make it a good consistency. . . you don't want oobleck.
food coloring. about 5 drops will do the trick.
Mix well, send kids outside with paintbrushes and watch them make art (even if it's just a big glob of color at the end!).
What's your favorite thing to do over the summer?
