We had a great time meeting so many members of our community at the 32nd annual Heritage Sandy Springs Festival!
If you visited our booth, you had a chance to check out the “best slime ever,” on display at our table. Heather Kaufman, a member of our board of directors, experimented with her young daughter (pictured below) to determine the most ideal recipe for slime. It was a big hit (as you can see in the photo here), as young people and adults all agreed it had a great consistency and was a lot of fun.
People who visited us also met our dedicated board members and staff and had an opportunity to learn about how we partner with our 11 public schools in Sandy Springs to provide programming and services in the following areas:
- STEAM: Legacy grants, the Hound Bowl, the annual STEAM Showcase and more!
- Literacy: Mini Libraries, Reading Buddies and Sandy Springs Reads
- After-school: After-School All Stars, After School North Springs, After School Tutoring and Lake Forest Elementary
- Mentoring: Link with a Leader, SAIL and CHOSEN, Junior Achievement and Business Bridge
We also shared information about our Footprints for the Future 5K Road Race, which is coming up on November 11th. If you register by October 18th, you get the best rate and guarantee a dri-balance t-shirt in your size. Learn more and register by clicking HERE.
As Heather and her daughter worked so hard to perfect the slime recipe, and since some people asked if we would post it online, here are the ingredients so you can make your own.
“Best Slime Ever” Recipe
Since it uses Borax, be sure to have adult supervision when making and using the slime.
Elmer’s School Glue
Food coloring (optional)
1) Squeeze 4 oz of glue into a glass bowl.
2) Mix in about 5 oz of warm water.
3) Add food coloring, if desired.
4) Mix 1 tsp Borax into ½ cup of water. Slowly add solution to the glue mixture.
5) Stir in the Borax solution until the slime starts to come together. (You may not use it all.)
6) Knead. It will be wet in the beginning, but will come together.
