Experiments & Fun

We tried a few experiments , they didn't really turn out well - 
So I went to the back up SLIME ,,,

I found a great recipe on Pinterest... by

Grinch Slime Recipe (affiliate links provided)
   Combine and mix the above ingredients in a bowl

We added 3-5 drops of Christmas essential oil to give our Grinch slime the perfect holiday scent.  It smells a lot like Christmas scented pine cones.  We love our Christmas essential oil and use it in activities often during the holidays.  If interested you can get it here.  You could just as easily use cinnamon or peppermint extract from your pantry or skip the addition of scent altogether.

In a second bowl combine
  • 3/4 teaspoons of borax
  • 1 & 1/3 cups very warm water
Mix the borax into the water and dissolve.  Once the ingredients of both bowls are mixed combine both bowls.  Mix the ingredients with your hands

As you mix the slime will form

There will be water left over in the bowl.  That can be thrown away.  Add Grinch ornaments or other festive Christmas items and the play can begin.
