Dino Drool




Inspired by our new favorite movie, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Alec solicited Benji's help in whipping up a batch of "Dino Drool". There is a scene in the movie where the juvenile action hero gets spit on by an enormous carnivorous dinosour. It's nasty, but fascinating to Alec, who watches all the bonus features on every movie to find out how everything is made. At the end of this movie, there is actually a recipe for the dino drool.

Hair Gel~~~7UP~~~Peat Moss

We had to go to our local nursery and purchase at 40lb. bag of the moss (the smallest size they had) so Alec could use a couple of tablespoons of it to add the "partially-chewed-food particle" effect to the slime. It actually smelled good because of the hair gel, but I couldn't convince either of the boys to let me style their hair with it!

oooh, what fun! We have a bunch of toy dinosaurs that I'm sure would love to slosh around in that mess...on the table in a baking pan of course with me hovering over them with a roll of paper towels :)

I concur, cool mom status achieved!

Oh! And I wonder if coffee grounds would work instead of the peet moss?

What a nice mom you are for letting Alec do that! I'm not so sure I would have. :) I'll send my boys to YOUR house for that kind of stuff. ;)
