PBS calls it Gooey Gak, Jay calls it slime, and I call it flubber. Whatever you choose to call it, it is fun to make and not a huge mess (whew!). The fact of the matter is that Jay has been begging me for Borax for months. MONTHS! I almost never go to the store because I buy all of my household items through Amazon’s Subscribe and Save feature. So today, I actually needed to go to Target, and he was determined to get Borax. We got Borax. He then proceeded to harass me to make slime the moment we got home. Didn’t happen.
Roll around to about 9:00 pm, and I finally felt ready to make slime. The cool thing is he had fun, and got to work with measurements. He learned that 4 ounces equals a half cup and one ounce equals two tablespoons. Learning is fun and awesome!
On the other hand, it’s not all rainbows and unicorns. We have had some frustrating days and moments, which I will write about next because I feel it is super important to “keep it real.”
In the meantime, I’m going to help Jay with his notebooking for the day while you take a look at our slimey pictures! ‘Til next time!
