D-I-Y Fun for the Whole Family


School is out and the excessive snacking and boredom might set in. That can be a very unpleasant combination without something to keep the kids busy and full. Here are two, fun and inexpensive D-I-Y projects to keep the kids busy and help them snack a little healthier, too!

Ooey gooey slimy fun

Ooey gooey slimy fun

With a few simple ingredients, the kids can create a fun, no-mess, slimy ball of goo!

Ingredients
- 2 4-oz. bottles of school glue, white
- 1 tsp. borax
- ½ cup warm water
- Glitter (optional)

Directions
Pour the bottles of glue into a bowl. Fill empty glue bottles with warm water, put the lids back on the bottles and shake to remove any remaining glue. Pour the water/glue mixture from each bottle into the bowl and mix with a spoon. In a separate bowl, mix ½ cup of warm water with 1 tsp. of borax until dissolved. Add the borax/water mixture to the glue and stir until goo forms! Sprinkle in glitter for extra sparkle! Store the goo in an airtight container or storage bag.

Frozen fruit snacks on a stick

Here is a healthy alternative to help curb the kids' summertime snacking, and have some fun while they’re at it!

Ingredients
- Popsicle/craft sticks (can be purchased at the grocery or craft store)
- 5-oz. plastic cups
- 3-5 different fruits, diced
- ¼ cup of your favorite juice (orange, apple, pineapple, as examples)

Directions
Combine diced fruit in a bowl and mix. Fill each cup with fruit and add 1 Tbsp. of juice to each cup. Insert popsicle/craft stick into the cup. Put the cups in the freezer for two to four hours until frozen and firm! To remove the fruit snacks from the cups, run under warm (not hot) water for a few seconds.

Note: If you have popsicle molds, substitute those for the plastic cups and enjoy!
