AUSTIN, Texas — Being a parent is always tough, but right now it seems even more difficult. It can be especially hard to keep your kids entertained, but we are here to help!
This year, Fourth of July looks a little bit different. No big events will be happening, but you can still celebrate by making Fourth of July crafts!
Follow these simple steps to make Fourth of July slime. This is a craft that keeps your kids busy when they make it, and after it's made, it will keep them busy for hours!
This craft did turn our kid's hands blue, but they were easily washed off with soap and water.
What you need:
- White school glue
- Liquid starch
- Food coloring
- Solo cups
- Craft sticks
- Tablecloth (optional)
- Glitter (optional)
Pour five ounces of glue into your cup.
Add a tablespoon of water and drops of red food coloring and glitter. Mix.
Add 1/4 cup of liquid starch.
Mix and then take it out of the cup and knead.
If it is too sticky, add a teaspoon of starch.
Repeat with blue food coloring.
Repeat with no food coloring to create white.
Now you have red, white and blue slime!
