I am excited to share this Simple Slime Recipe that we used today. It is so easy that anyone can do it as long as you have the materials needed for it.
Children get bored easily during vacation months. And sometimes, we run out of activities for them. As a parent, I feel the need to satisfy my children’s curiosity by giving them interactive and fun ways to learn. When the weather is nice outside, we have a small sandbox in our backyard that they spend time in. We made this sandbox in just 5 minutes. No need to get the expensive ones from the store.

Here are other things you can make without spending so much money and will definitely occupy your kids time. Most of the materials you need for these can usually be found around the house. You can make a DIY Rocketship or Rocketpacks, something that will enhance your children’s imagination.
Anyway, today my children asked me if they could play with slime. Although I know that it’s easier to buy it here or from any other craft/toy store, I chose to make it from scratch so that my kids will be able to experience making it on their own. It’s nice to teach them that we don’t have to buy every time they want something. That making things on their own will be more satisfying and will make them more proud. I hope your kids will have fun as much as we did with this activity.
