do you guys ever find blogs and just have to ask where they've been all your life? okay, great. we're on the same page then. mine happens to be morgan's blog tot treasures. being a former teacher, morgan knows all about the ins and outs of a little one's mind and her blog is full of all kinds of easy and fun projects that i can do with hallie and know they're helping her little brain grow. from sensory activites, to DIY toys and games, to paint and watercolor... morgan's blog kind of has it all and i'm so happy that i always have it as a reference, especially during these hot summer days! after a particularly boring day last week, we decided to put one of morgan's activities into action. we went with a DIY slime recipe that only involved 2 ingredients (3 if you include the food coloring).
equal parts of clear glue & liquid starch
food coloring (optional)
hallie loved squishing it around and feeling it inbetween her fingers so much that she was entertained for a good 30 minutes while i got some reading done. parent score! she even made up a song to sing to it. i think it went a little something like, "i love my squishy stuff momma made, it's cool and fun and fun to play!" she's cute.
if you want to check out morgan's post creating the slime with her daughter (you do. she's adorable!) you can go here. while you're there, be sure to look at her right sidebar to see a list all of the awesome activities that i mentioned above to do with your toddler. happy monday, everyone!
