We made slime

I am always on the look out for creative craft or cooking activities to entertain the kids in the holidays.
Years ago we used to rely on 'The Useful Book" from the Tv show Play School but thanks to the internet & now the wonderful world of pinterest the activity inspiration is just an endless pool of great ideas & tutorials.
In the holidays we made slime, we got the recipe from
which is full of great ideas for sensory play.

All you need is;
1tbspn of psyllium husk
Food colouring
1cup of water
Whisk it all togethor in a large mixing bowl (it bubbles up really high)
Microwave for 5 min

It peels out of the bowl which looks really cool.
My kids rolled it around the tray for a few minutes with spoons because they were to excited to wait for it to cool.

Now this stuff kept my 7yr old amused for hours but my 12 year old helped with the slime making & had a great time playing around with it.

I have no idea how long it keeps for, we will probably keep it in an air tight container for a few days & see how it goes.
