Summer vacation started in Vancouver two weeks ago, and I’m already hearing “We’re bored!” My favorite line to tell my kids is “Only boring people get bored. You are both creative individuals and when you have your creativity there are endless possibilities to keep you entertained.”
The other day I whipped up a batch of crunchy rainbow glitter slime for a post that I did for MomResource.ca. You can find the recipe here. I know that kids love slime and that it would keep them entertained for a good chunk of time, but I wasn’t prepared for just how long they would play with it! 3 hours!!! For 3 hours friends they sat at our dining room table playing with slime. Every day since then they have pulled out the slime and played with it for at least an hour a day. In this house, this is a #MomWin!
One of the things that my kids seem to love the most about this slime is that I used FloraCraft Slime Ballz in the recipe (you can find them here). The balls give the slime a crunch and because they create air pockets it makes the slime snap, crackle and pop as you play with it!
