Marble Shake Painting 

Summertime is in full swing over here. After wiping sweat beads away from my forehead, burning my legs on my car's black leather seat, and spewing insults at the heavy and thick 105 degree weather, I vowed to stay inside as much as possible.

THE PERILS OF SLIME AND DIY BOUNCY BALLS!

I'll start with a disclaimer. This just may be my last kid DIY post wherein Borax is on the ingredient list. R just adores generating goopy substances with her own little hands -- truly, what kid doesn't? And so far Borax hasn't been an issue for us. R knows not to put her slime hands… Continue reading THE PERILS OF SLIME AND DIY BOUNCY BALLS!
