Flubber, gak, fluff, or whatever you may call it

Last night the family had an awesome time with flubber.  It was super easy to make and my daughter sat playing with it for a long time.  :)  I also found glue for 25 cents a bottle at the grocery store.  With school starting I bet many of you stocked up on your glue so here is a great recipe to use some of it.  :) 

Here is how you make it:
1 1/3 cups warm water
3 teaspoons borax
Stir together well

1 1/2 cups warm water
2 cups glue (about 2 large bottles) (I used 4 4oz bottles)
food coloring (if wanted)
mix together well

Poor the borax and water over the glue mixture
(Get ready to get sticky! lol)
Let it sit about 20 seconds then carefully flip it over
it will be semi solid and very sticky, continue to play and work with it until all the liquid is gone. 

The more you play with it the more "solid" it gets, let it sit on your hand and it turns more "liquid" VERY fun! Once it is made its not very messy and easy to clean off surfaces.

I stored mine in ziploc bags.   

Making the flubber!

Still mixing

Wow, look at it all!  We brought half of it to the YMCA mini care so other kids can play with it too.

Stick it in a cup and listen.  (it will make fart noises and there will be lots of laughing)

Daddy could not resist the noisy fun! 

Other tools we used while playing. 

Try to blow a bubble in it... VERY hard but a fun challenge.  

Before I did this we had just read about our 5 senses.  We were able to use 4 of our senses during this activity.  Touch, smell, see, and listen.  :)  (NO tasting allowed)  Listening was fun as we mixed the ingredients together but also stuffing it in a cup, the smell was primarily glue, and the touching was the most exciting.  :)
What a great sensory activity that will provide hours of fun!  :)

Oh my that looks like SO much fun! Little Bit is still in that I don't care for strange textures phase so I will have to file this away for later. Looks like the littlest one was intrigued by your creation, hehe.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
