FAST AND EASY SLIMEY SLIME
I had glue left from last year. I had food coloring in the cupboard. I grabbed some liquid starch from the little neighborhood market, since that is the only place that still carries it and that is likely because few people starch things and fewer people iron them.
The result was fast, easy, sweet-smelling slimey slime
which lasted for three whole days in Ziploc bags.
For some reason, it wasn’t enough to roll it around in little hands . . . the children had to touch it in a million other ways.
What is that all about?
After only a few minutes. most slime deposits had knee prints and face prints.
AND, the yellow and pink slime was gone.
In its place was ONE color – ORANGE !
Silly me. I thought the color mattered.
These kids COULDN’T HAVE CARED LESS
what color it was in the beginning or at the end.
It was the way it felt and what they could threaten to do with it
that was important.
