Why, play outside of course!
I've been promising the boys ever since Baby Starfish was born that I would make them some blue goo to play with. Today I made good on my promise.
They had an absolute blast. I think the pictures speak for themselves...

And clean up wasn't as bad as I thought it might be... a container of soapy water at the back door to deal with their hands was a much better idea than making them wash up in the bathroom. (Should have thought even further ahead and filled the little shell pool on the back lawn with warm soapy water and let them go for it! lol maybe next time).
I got the idea from Em, (a great girl and super creative mum) but fiddled with the recipe a bit.
Here's what I did:
2 cups Corn starch
1 cup of water
+ a few drops of food colouring.
You can add more water or cornstarch as you go to play with texture and consistency. Little Clam even wanted to do a "taste test" on it. Ew!
Most of all, have fun - and create some memories with your little ones! :)
Till next time...
