I love getting good and dirty and so do kids!  Since it’s the end of the summer, I thought I would post my three favorite ways to get good and dirty before going back to school!  Let us know your favorite grimy games!!!

1. Making SLIME:

  • 1 cup cornstarch per child
  • About 1/4 cup water per child
  • Food coloring (many colors)
  • 1 zip-lock plastic sandwich bag per child

Add the cornstarch, water, and a few drops of food coloring into each bag and squeeze out all of the access air.  Close the bag and have the kids blend the ingredients together well.  Pour out in your hands and watch the slime ooze all over!

2. MUD FIGHT! (I think the picure says it all!)

3. Spaghetti Wars

I wish I had a picture of this one!  Cook up a huge batch of spaghetti noodles and split it between your participants.   On go, have everyone starting flinging spaghetti at each other one piece at a time.  You can’t pull spaghetti off of yourself with your hands so if you want it off you have to shake your body.  If you find some on the ground you can pick it up and throw it on someone else.  The person with the least spaghetti on them at the end of the game wins!!!
