|I figured I would need 2/3 cup Borax in a gallon of water, to |
make the "Borax solution" ahead of time for 100+ "servings".
|My sample, which I took out every so often to show.|
- 1 plastic baggie (I used quart sized freezer bags, so they would be sturdy enough for all the squishing)
- 4 spoonfuls of water
- 2 drops of food coloring (neon colors are great!)
- 4 spoonfuls of glue (I went through about a gallon of Elmer's School Glue, but didn't have nearly as many kids as we'd hoped for)
- 2 spoonfuls of Borax solution
Spoonfuls was a really easy measuring system. I just made sure to keep the proportions correct from the recipe. The glue was the hardest to measure, and I often ended up adding another spoonful after kids had squished for awhile.
This craft was such a huge hit. Unfortunately there was also a day camp going on at one of the local schools that took a lot of my kids away. Parents came in saying their children were so disappointed they couldn't come, and did I have the recipe I could share? So I posted the link above to our Facebook page, and directed parents there so they could make it themselves.
I wish Borax came in smaller containers. Oh well, I bought this box myself and am using the rest at home with my laundry. :)
