Kid’s Craft #109-Halloween Pumpkins!

31 Oct

We don’t actually carve our pumpkins-first because of the darn squirrels that love to eat them, and second, since everyone is still young, it is fun to just let them color.  So, I usually just find a template they like, trace it onto a pumpkin, and let them go to town.  This year, it was a My Little Pony for The Girlio, and a Despicable Me minion for The Boy.  🙂

Pinterest Thursday-Frozen Silly Putty

30 Oct

I found a recipe for Frozen silly putty on Pinterest, and well, we just HAD to try it as a science experiment!  🙂

This was a FUN experiment!  So much so, that we made two batches.  With the first batch, we definitely added TOO much glitter.  You can see in the picture below that it got all over the table.  🙂  We made a blue batch, and then a pink batch.  The best part, was the chemical reaction with the glue and the borax-SO cool to see an immediate change in consistency.  The end result was really more of a cross between play-do and silly putty.  It was easy to roll into strips, make shapes, etc., without the crumbly mess of play-do (which is what I don’t like about play-do.)  We stored each batch in ziploc bags, and it hasn’t dried out at all.  Very fun, and I am sure we will make more!
