Summer Fun - Week 2

For our summer fun this week...
We made flarp...

and Lexy LOVED it!!  The recipe is:
1 c. white glue
1 c. water
food coloring

1 c. warm water
1 1/2 t. borax powder

Mix the glue with 1 c. water in a large bowl.  Add a couple of drops of food coloring, set aside.  In a small bowl, mix warm water with Borax.  Add to the glue/water mixture and stir for 2 minutes - it will go from liquid to a nasty stringy mess then at the end of 2 min. (ours took 4 min.) it will be putty.  Knead to smooth putty out.

Stuff putty into a small cup (we used a film canister and a cup).  Friction makes the putty make "fart" noises.  Store in an airtight cantainer.

We went to lunch, shopping & bowling with Robin, Kenzie, Ryan & Molly....

We went swimming at the local pool...

And we went shopping for vacation items!!
