Kids in the Kitchen: Slime!

Not so long ago, I found a photo on Pinterest that showed a Pride and Prejudice quote, written onto a white mug. I was so excited, I immediately created a bunch of them for each of my book club girls as Christmas gifts. Sadly, they didn't turn out very well and I'm not sure anyone was jumping up and down for joy about them. I knew there had to be a better way to make them.
