Are you ready to impress your friends? If so, you’ve come to the right place! Today, we’ll be showing you some fun, quick and easy DIY projects that will make your friends’ jaws drop.
To make magic mud just chop up some potatoes into small pieces. Then put them into a large bowl, and pour in enough hot water to cover them completely. Stir the mixture for a few minutes until the water turns red. Using a strainer and a bowl, separate the water from the chunks of potatoes, and allow it to sit for 10 minutes until a white layer appears. Add some fresh water to the white layer, and pour it into a container with a lid. With the lid secured, shake it up and let it sit for 10 minutes. Drain the water from the mixture, and you’ll be left with a substance that looks like milk. After a few days, the milk-like substance will turn to powder. Combine the powder with tonic water to give it a glow effect, and you’re ready to have fun with your friends!
To make this all-natural glow in the dark Play-Doh, crush two capsules of B-50 complex vitamins until they turn into a powder. Then mix the powder with 2 cups of flour, 4 teaspoons of cream of tartar, and 2/3 cups of salt. When everything is combined, add 2 cups of warm water and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil to the mixture. Whisk everything together until it’s smooth. Add the solution to a saucepan, and cook it on medium heat until the Play-Doh forms into a ball. Allow it to cool for few minutes, take it into a dark room, turn on a backlight, and watch it glow!
These squirmy jelly worms are easy to make, and they taste delicious, too! You’ll need a pack of raspberry Jell-O, an extra pack of unflavored gelatin for extra firmness, 3/4 cups of whipping cream, 3 cups of water, food coloring, flexible straws, and one tall container to hold the straws. Combine the gelatin in a bowl and add the hot water. Let the mixture cool until it’s lukewarm, then add the whipping cream and food coloring. Gather your straws, and put them in the container so they fit tightly. Add the gelatin mixture inside each straw and let it sit until they become firm. Then squeeze the worms out of the straws and proceed to devour them!
If you want to kick things up a notch with your slime, you can make this edible version for you and your friends to play with and snack on at the same time! Just take 1/4 cup of basil seeds and add a 16-ounce box of cornstarch. Mix the two together with your hands, and then add food coloring and 2 1/2 cups of water. Stir well and knead the mixture like bread dough for about 5 minutes. The basil seeds will begin to absorb the water, and the mixture will thicken. Once the slime feels nice and smooth, it’s ready to be played with…and eaten!
