Summer is here!!! Today is the last official day for teachers and though I will still report to work for another 30 days, I am already thinking about next year. Some of the ideas I have found on Pinterest lately could be used for a bit of summer fun or for our new Makerspace:)
First up…slime! I have never tried slime, but I found these two great variations…
both recipes called for liquid starch, liquid glue, and a few embellishments. The biggest differences? In the ocean slime, white glue was mixed with starch, food coloring and glitter.
For the Star-Spangled Slime, clear glue was used as the base. I can imagine changing up the colors for different times of the year…orange for October…green for December. I am at least game to try. My house has been filled with all kinds of “experiments” these past few months as I have tried out many ideas for the Makerspace. I’ll let you know how it goes!

How fun is this? We are getting a new building this summer and I am really not sure how better to make a huge impact on the walls than creating a giant mural from post-it notes. I love these pixelated murals and think that they would fun to try. I love that they are not permanent so, they can easily be change to keep the space fresh.
