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.
Our little family is currently living in California, as Kevin has been attending pharmacy school here. He just graduated in June and we are on the job hunt! It's exciting and scary all at the same time. We have three children, Kassidy is 6, Korbin is 2, and McKinley is 9 months. We're missing family and friends, but making new ones and we love it! We love life and hope to catch up with friends, old and new, through our blog :)
