|Art Project~Chocolate Pudding Finger Paint! This kept her busy for the longest time, and me entertained listening to her play!|
|Science experiment fun! No greater way to learn than hands on, right? I love his different expressions here! This week we've made it rain over the stove, poured air into underwater jars, and learned about mixtures and compound/chemical changes!|
These instructions differ from all the others that I've found on Pinterest and on other Blogs. They all seemed to call for 'glitter glue' as an ingredient. I didn't have this on hand, so after a failed attempt at just mixing water, food color, and glitter, I finally did some reading on instructions and came up with this easily created solution!
If you don't have the glue-the glitter will stay clumped together and float to the surface. To thicken your 'water' and make the glitter stay suspended longer, simply use clear glue!
|Sometimes we just need something to focus on to calm us down! But wait....I made this for the kids, not Mama! Although I admit to already planning of making my own version of this little soothing machine! |
This is SO simple....
1. Pour hot water into your jar or other pretty container
2. Add your clear glue
(I used a solution of 1 Cup 2 Tbs. Hot Water to 1/4 Cup Clear Glue. It takes about 4 minutes for the glitter to settle in this jar. You can play with this mixture to change that up!)
3. Add a couple of drops of food coloring. A little goes a LONG way!
4. Dump in some glitter
5. Seal it up (Watch for glitter on your inner seal if you're using canning jars-it will cause a leak)
6. Shake! Shake! Shake!
Remember to fill as close to top as you can so that you won't get a gap.
And that....is IT! I did hot glue my seal and the ring onto the jar after I was done!
