Last week I was looking for some new activities to try with D to keep him occupied and stimulated. I thought about something that I liked to do as a kid, MAKE SLIME! This is a great activity to try with toddlers and kids because you probably already have all the ingredients in your cabinet and the mess is pretty easy to clean up because all of the ingredients are natural. Just wipe it away with some water.
For the slime I used cornstarch and water. That's it. Super simple. Play around with the proportions to get different textures of slime. Older kids might even want to try adding food coloring, just be careful of stains.
While we were already digging through the kitchen cabinets I figured I'd
pull out the good old vinegar and baking soda for some cool foaming
That kept him occupied for at least half an hour. Do you keep any tricks up your sleeve to pull out and impress the kiddos every once in a while?
