My Thoughts:

There are few things as fun and relaxing as making your own slime and putty. Upon seeing the fun designs on the cover of Super Squishies, Slime, and Putty I knew I needed to look through this book! With over thirty crafts from animals to food, there is something for every child and adult alike.

The imagery in the book was one of my favorite aspects. Plus, there are also recipes inside for making everything at home! There are even designs for creating your squishies into key chains to hang from your phone or other devices. One of my favorites was the fox I shared in the photo!

If you are looking for something fun to do with your family, I highly recommend this book! It's perfect for any arts and crafts library!
