Who would have ever thought mixing glue, Borox, water, and some food coloring would keep us entertained for hours . . . well it did.
First, Dustin helped me mix the ingredients.  We mixed 1/2 cup water, a few drops of food coloring, and 1/2 cup glue in one bowl.  In another bowl we dissolved 2 tsp Borox with 1/2 cup water.  Then, we poured the glue mixture in with the Borox mixture and it immediately began to solidify.  Mix it really well and then GO NUTS! 

The texture is really interesting.  It's rubbery, stretchy, and a little brittle if you pull it too fast.

We had fun making snakes, bouncy balls, and digging our fingers into it. 

I also let Dustin practice cutting it with a butter knife.  Overall, great before nap time activity . . . that's probably why I can hear him talking about right now on his monitor :)
