You will fall in love with Magic Slates!

No matter what age you are, these amazingly, simple bags of “squish” will delight you.
Squish them, draw lines in them, chase the bubbles or hold up two different colors to the light to mix colors or just let the sunlight filter through them to put a spin on your view of the world. 
Warm them up in a sunny spot, then enjoy the warmth of your bag. 

No matter how you choose to play with your magic slate, 

it will leave you feeling ready to smile.



 Materials:         Heavy duty storage bags that seal.
                          Check each bag before you start to see if it has any leaks in the corners.
                          Corn syrup
                          food coloring
                          clear, wide plastic tape
 

Procedures:  Pour about 1/3 cup of corn syrup with a few drops of food coloring into each bag.  
 Primary colors work well, especially if using this activity to teach how colors are made.   
(Red +Yellow = Orange; Red + Blue = Violet; Yellow + Blue = Green)   
Seal each bag and add a reinforcement of clear packing tape across the top to prevent curiosity sticky messes!  A strip of clear plastic tape on all four sides would also help, if you are worried about a leak.
 

Tips:  Children love to squish, manipulate, draw numbers/letters, chase bubbles and hold up to the light 
         blending two colors. 

Always check the bags for leaks before and after each play time!
