      I am loving your comments and so glad you find the ideas helpful for you!!

    I am loving all these ideas, especially the slime and the rainbow toast. We made slime the other day and it didn’t turn out right (according to the Head Teach). I think it stayed too sticky. She thought maybe it was because her glue was too old. We were going to have a build your own taco this week, but I think rainbow toast might be more fun! Also, I was wondering, do you have a regular segment on fox news? I keep seeing the videos at the bottom of some of your posts. I haven’t been able to watch any yet, but I was wondering. 🙂

      Hi Amanda,
      I have a regular spot on Indiana Fox News but I wouldn’t say that I am all that good at keeping up with regular segments. I try to make it there once a month but during the school year, it is hard to keep up:) When the slime is too sticky, rinse it off and let it sit out on a tray for a bit. Then play with it some more. This has helped me in the past. Don’t set it on a paper towel or cloth!!

        Well that’s awesome! I can’t imagine being on television. The thought makes me shudder a little. We both live in Indiana, so I’m familiar with Fox News but don’t watch it very often anymore. Thanks for the tip. We stores it to use again soon. One boys laid it (literally) across his head. That was…interesting. 🙂
