Today we read bits and pieces of Stink-O-Pedia by Megan McDonald.  It was more geared towards older kids, but it had some fun facts in it 🙂

Today’s experiment was to make slime!  This was definitely Violet’s favorite so far.  She played with it for over an hour.

Stir 1/2 tsp of Borax into 1/4 cup of water.  Slowly pour into the glue mixture and stir!  It’ll clump up and turn into slime.
