As Seen on TV :: Playtime with Children

Tune into Q13 FOX this morning at 7:45 and 8:45 to get loads of ideas for entertaining your children this summer!

I love hanging out with these three little people - they are a constant source of entertainment.  But they also require a certain amount of entertainment.  As the summer approaches and they are home all the time, I have a handful of suggestions to keep them occupied and entertained.  Tune in to see all of them - and below are instructions for those with actual "recipes."  

4 ounces Elmers glue
4 ounces water

1 teaspoon Borax
1 teaspoon hot water

Combine together the glue and the water in one container.  In a separate container, dissolve the Borax in hot water.  Slowly pour the Borax solution into the glue solution while stirring.  The two liquids will begin to form a solid slime!  You can add food coloring to the glue solution before combining if you want a colored slime.  It will keep in an airtight container {like a ziploc bag} for about a week.

2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons warm water
food coloring

Mix everything together {I use a canning jar with a lid} and paint outside with a brush!  The paint will dry and look like chalk.  Washes away with water.  

Enjoy the summer!  And tune in every Wednesday for an Endless Summer Project - a collaboration with  Alexandra Hedin, Classic PlayPars Caeli, Lulu the Baker, and This Heart of Mine to bring you fabulous summer projects for the whole family for the whole summer.
