This is a spin on the BUBBLE BOY Post.
My girls love all things glow in the dark. They have been asking to do GLOW AND SEEK for a while now. They can never make it up until dark... so I thought I would bring the dark to them. AK and her son came over for the fun as well. :-) Materials used: Black Tarp. (I used THIS, and folded it in half) 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. Hear that?

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?

In my Black Friday post, I mentioned that I was giving away these Secret Savings cards with the first 25 orders!
Now, I'm going to show you how to make them! It's the easiest thing ever, all you need is this stuff: Liquid dish soapSilver acrylic paint (the dollar store!) Clear packing tapePaint brushYou will first need to make your little cards or whatever you want to contain the scratch off. I printed my little savings cards on thick cardstock. Then you'll need to grab your tape. Now, mix up your scratch off solution! Paint over the tape you applied with the paint solution.
You'll need to let this layer dry completely before applying another layer. That's pretty much it! Like this tutorial? Flubber. Flubber is a polymer made by a chemical reaction.
Polymers are very long chains of repeating units. When the two solutions are combined, polyvinyl acetate chains (a polymer from the white glue) are linked together in a 3-dimensional arrangement by borate ions (from the Borax) and other chemical bonds. This produces the thick, sticky polymer called Flubber. You can make flubber at home and find out what happens when: it is stretched? The BEST Play-Dough Recipe.

Well… not this time. This recipe will make play dough that is seriously the closest thing to store-bought you’ll ever make. No falling apart or drying out (as long as stored in a sealed container). It will last up to 6 months.The secret to this recipe?? Two things: First, Cream of Tarter… it’s what helps the dough stay together. and Second, not a lot of salt… all that salt dries out your dough! Ready to make it? Ingredients: 1 C Flour 1 C Water 1/4 C Salt 1 TBSP Vegetable Oil 2 tsp Cream of Tarter Food Coloring (actual coloring or a kool-aid packet will do) Sparkles (If you wanna be a fun mom!)
Pour in all ingredients. Stir until everything is mixed well. Once the mixture is (mostly) clump free. Stir. Stir, Stir Stir.Just keep stirring until the Play Dough is formed. Remove from heat, and knead by hand. Once cooled it’s ready to go. What a fun thing to do on a rainy day! # kristanlynn xoxo UPDATE- answering your questions:
