DIY: Monster Slime

The inspiration came from 2 completely different angles, a desire to want to get all the babes together again and of course the season of monsters and gobblins, Halloween. And so here we have it, a wild playdate geared around making a monster mess with Monster Slime.

All our husbands grew up together, we all got married around the same time, give or take a few years and course kids came thereafter, give or take a few years. So of course getting them together as often as we can is something us wives do often, but it’s not always easy. The kids ages range from 2 to 5 and finding things that they can all do is not always easy. Crafts has been something that we find success in, a little creative session, a little play, and a lot of mess. Everyone leaves happy and connected once again. I love this little extended family we’ve created. Looking forward to our yearly “Chosen Family Christmas Dinner”.
