Today to fill some time I made some space snow for Kassidy and I to play with. It took a little while for Kassidy to warm up to the idea of playing with slimy messy stuff, but once she got into it we had a really good time! It's something my mom used to make for us as kids and let us play with. Space snow is fun because it's a solid when you pinch it or hold it tight, and then it turns into a gooey liquid when you let it run loose. So fun! Here's the recipe if anyone's interested:
4 Tbsp cornstarch
2 Tbsp water (you may have to add a little more)
2 drops of desired food coloring
Mix together well. You may have to adjust the cornstarch to water ratio according to how much you want to make. Warning: This is very messy but very fun! I let Kassidy play with it in a bowl and also gave her a plate to dump it onto. We ended up making a second batch in a different color because it's fun to mix the colors and see how it turns out. Clean up is simple because you can wipe it all up with a wet rag, and it comes out of clothes easily too.
