Homemade Goo

We're ready for hours of playtime using only a few ingredients that we already have around the house.  Whether we're at home, at a restaurant, traveling, or at a playdate, this goo is a hot ticket item in our house. Good news-it doesn't leave a resitudeo to stick to anything but itself!

8 oz white or carpenter's glue
3/4 cup water
food coloring (optional)
1 teaspoon 20 Mule Team borax
1-2 TB water

Combine first three ingredients.  In a separate bowl, combine the last two.  Add the borax mixture to the glue mixture, stirring until a "blob" forms.  Remove the blob from the mixture. Add a new batch of the borax mixture to the glue mixture.  Repeat the process until the glue mixture is all gone.  Knead all the blobs together.  Store in an airtight container.

Most of all, have FUN!

Mom's Time Out Fall Market: The Place to Shop!

Whether you're ready to do some early holiday shopping or ready to enjoy the beautiful weather this time of year, our Mom's Time Out event is definitely the place to be.  I don't know any other event where I'm supporting both local businesses AND mom-run operations AND building community like our markets. I guarantee you won't find anyone asking you to sign up for a credit card, sell you an inflated cheap item, or encounter a rude face behind the booth.  Our event is fun in spirit and the positive energy is a breath of fresh air.

So come out to Earth Fare tomorrow and we promise a great time!
