Sigh. Maybe I'll make rock candy when we get back. That might hold their attentions for a weeee bit longer. Here is how it progressed:

That is sooooo often the case. You think of something really cool to do and the kids look at you like you've lost your mind - they say "cool" when you ask them about it (so you don't feel too bad) and walk away. LOL.

Oh I have a craft for you! Rent the movie flubber and then make some! We did and it is FUN. You need Borax (Target), glue, food color and one other thing. GRRR. Warm Water!

And its a fun movie, rated G. And flubber comes out of clothes. I have to look it up, but it comes out easily.
