Space Mud

My Friend Heather Robertson first introduced me to this ingenious concoction through our little preschool group. It has since become a very popular play staple in our home. So much so that we took the ingredients to Arizona to make ourselves a batch there. The kids and their cousins had a fantastic time playing with it. And there was no surprise to see the adults getting in on the action. Heather had warned me that it would be consuming even to adults.

Here's the recipe. Everyone Enjoy.

In one bowl mix:
2 cups Elmer's glue (use Elmer's!)
1 1/2 cups hot water from tap
food coloring

In another bowl mix until dissolved:
1 1/3 cup hot water
1 Tablespoon Borax

Mix together. I ended up kind of kneading it together after a while. Don't dispare when you mix it all together and it looks like a watery mess. A chemical reaction takes place and the liquid turns to SPACE MUD!
