It was just another Summer morning with me trying to keep the kiddos entertained and lets face it keeping my sanity. This morning, we were going to try making slime. What I did not realize was what God was going to reveal to me through this activity. We used the recipe that used Contact Solution.
4oz Elmer’s Glue (we used the clear glue)
½ tbsp. of Baking Powder
1 tbsp Contact Solution
Any color Food Coloring
Mix together in a bowl and more contact solution can be used to make it less sticky and manageable.
Helpful Mom Tip: (store in a sealable sandwich bag and the slime can be played with later.)
This activity kept my kids entertained for a while. The more the kids played with the slime, the more God started to reveal to me how he is just like the contact solution used to make the slime/gak. Let’s face it motherhood gets sticky, motherhood gets messy but God’s word makes things less sticky and more manageable. God never says life will be easy but He does say he will never leave us or forsake us. He is always with us and this only happens when we continue to stay in “Contact” with Jesus and God’s word. The simplest of activities with your children can be turned into teachable lessons on God’s word and God’s goodness. So mom make some fun slime/gak moments with your children and remain in “Contact” with God’s word.
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. John 15:4
A man who endures trials is blessed, because when he passes the test he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12
