1 creepy crawly, 2 creepy crawlys, 3… she counts as she slides the small plastic bugs up and down my arm.
Mommy, look at your arm… with a giggle and snicker she is in heaven.
“Oh my… what’s on my arm?” “Crawlies…hehehe” she snickers.
I’ve never met a little girl that loves crawlies as much as this one. Who am I to complain though?
So it seemed only fitting when we found this set of crawlies to mix it with another obsession of hers… slime.
At this point my four year old daughter has gotten so good at making slime, she can do it on her own and this simple 3 ingredient creepy crawly slime is no different. It’s so easy, literally anyone could make it!
