One More Studio AE December Layout


Hi everyone!

The month is almost over, but there is still time to subscribe to Studio AE if you want to start with the December kit.  I don't scrap much about Willie's Autism because sometimes its a struggle for me to focus on the positive instead of dwelling on the negative.  But I got this one made!  The stuff he's playing with is from a recipe I found on Pinterest.  The pin calls it Slime, but when I showed it to one of Willie's therapists he said they call it "gak".  It is a mix of borax, which is a powdered laundry detergent booster, water, and Elmers glue.  In the pin they use clear glue and add green dye.  We just used the white glue.  Anyway, Willie really took an interest in this stuff!  He doesn't like play doh too much but he likes this.  It comes out the consistency of cooked egg whites, but very stretchy and really doesn't leave a residue on your hands.  It keeps for weeks in a ziploc bag before it starts to break down and get gluey again.  If you've got kids home this week and are looking for an activity I would recommend mixing up some Slime/Gak.  Its pretty cool!

Thanks for stopping by.
