I’ll be babysitting with the grandkids, Lucy and Liam, on Friday and I like to try to find things to do with my 3 1/2 year old granddaughter, Lucy.  You can only play princesses so long (when she is in control of the script) and with the weather this week, we need some fun things to do inside. Liam, at 14 months, is still pretty good at just following along and entertaining himself, but I think he’ll like it, too.  So, ok….maybe I won’t make him play with the pink slime.  I’ll get two colors.  You can store these and use them again for awhile, so that should work.)  I found this slime idea the other day, so I’ll be off to the store to get “hot pink”  and maybe “lime green” Elmers Glitter Glue and borax.  Borax?  I haven’t heard much out of borax since the days of “Death Valley Days” on TV and the twenty mule team borax commercials.  You know the one I mean.  You don’t?  Then watch this.  But I guess I’m dating myself. Stayed tuned for pics.  I’ll let you know how it works.  But, with hot pink glitter, I can’t go wrong, right?
