How to Learn from Other People's Mistakes Kids in the Kitchen: Slime! September is in full swing and we thought we’d celebrate by doing Back-to-School week! My oldest kiddo just started pre-school and Kate is now the mother to an official kindergartner. This week we’re going to have *five* posts. Do you guys remember this?? I was so obsessed with that stuff and I totally remember the commercials. If you’ve ventured into science fun like this before then you already know that 97% of home projects require the same 2 ingredients. Start by dissolving a teaspoon of Borax in one cup of water and set it aside. Now pour the Elmer’s glue in a separate bowl. Add some water to that glue and then stir in some food coloring. Once that’s all stirred up, just pour your Borax mix into the bowl. See? It will be wet and soft at first but you just have to keep kneading it. I have to say I actually prefer the white glue. Older kids can help measure and stir and younger ones can stand and protest that they don’t get to. This is their favorite part. Homemade Slime aka GAK

respondcreate_home DIY Natural Clay Mascara (that actually works) » Humblebee & Me Speaking of things I wasn’t sure I’d ever crack—mascara. There’s a reason this is my first entry of my third year of blogging. I have been trying to figure out mascara for ages now. You wouldn’t believe the amounts of black goop I’ve tossed over the last few years. First off, mascara must dry quickly—but not too quickly. Once it’s on your lashes, it mustn’t flake, but it also mustn’t melt. Then, after all that, it must actually do something. As it turns out, it is very difficult to achieve all of these things without the use of coal tar, a wide variety of solvents and petroleum-derived dyes, and a heavy dose of chemistry inspired magic. My initial experiments focused around activated charcoal mashed together with oil thickened with wax. From there I moved to experiments with activated charcoal or black oxide in a thickened water base, but all that got me was utterly crap gel-type mixtures with bits of black suspended in them.
