I went to the local craft store other day and they were out of Elmer’s Glue. I was told they were running out of them all the time due to slime being so popular now.
Well of course I went to get some for my kids to make more slime, yes more – they are always coming up with these new recipes; glow in the dark slime, galaxy slime, glitter slime, edible slime, butter slime and so forth.
While I sat down with my kids looking for some new slime recipes, we were amazed to find there are so many cool and fancy recipes out there. And they are so easy! So here are some of our collections from the internet that you might like to try with your kids too. Have fun! More
This is a very simple valentine day craft to do with your kids. My girls came up with the idea and with some clue and colorful papers and of course the pencils we were able to create these in just a few minutes.
An easy project to do with your little ones this weekend. My girls are planning to give out the pencils to their classmates with each child’s name written on the paper before adding it to the pencils.
So what we did was, we cut out the trianges and stick them to one end of the pencil using double-sided tape so that it’s easier for the kids to take them off and use the pencils. We did the same thing on the other end of the pencil – we made the shape to look like the end of an arrow.
For the cards, we printed out a cardstock with “YOU ARE MY VALENTINE” and using our cricut we cut out the heart shapes and added them to the cards using the glue.
Very simple and easy project. Hope you’ll try it too.
