Disney Inspired Slime: Toy Story Little Green Men Slime + Toy Story 4 Trailer

We have more Disney inspired slimes and MORE Toy Story slimes! Don’t tell me that you missed our Toy Story Woody slime?! If you did, don’t worry you can check it out here.

Isn’t it the cutest? Well, yes, but our newest Toy Story inspired slime is pretty cute! I love the Little Green Men (“oooohhh the claw”) from the movies. And I couldn’t imagine having a Toy Story set of slimes without including them!

Before I share the tutorial on how to make alien slime, I HAVE to share with you more trailers from Disney’s Toy Story 4!

Toy Story is full of iconic characters who lovingly make reappearances throughout the movies. Toy Story 4 brings in a few new characters too! Woody’s journey in “Toy Story 4” includes a visit to a carnival where he meets Ducky and Bunny, two carnival prizes who are eager to be won. But when their plans are rudely interrupted by Woody and his friends, they find themselves on an unexpected adventure with a group of toys who have no idea what it feels like to be tacked to a prize wall.

Toy Story 4 is set to release June 21 2019!

If you are getting yourself ready like I am by watching all of the old Toy Story movies or if your kiddo is having a Toy Story party then this new Little Green Men slime is perfect for you!

A few things before you start:

  • These are hands down the best containers for slime! Inexpensive and abundant. Plus a great size!
  • We use Elmer’s Glue with all of our recipes. Different glues may take different amounts of ingredients.

Toy Story Alien Slime supplies:

How to make Toy Story Alien Slime:

  1. In a container, pour 5 oz clear glue.
  2. Add 1/2 cup water and stir until the glue is completely broken down with the water.
  3. Add in your coloring. I used soap colorant in kiwi. I love using soap colorants! They are skin safe, don’t color your hands and available in a lot of different colors!
  4. Pour in some green glitter. I wanted a subtle glitter look so I used an extra fine green glitter. Mix well.
  5. Mix in 1/2 tsp of baking soda. Baking soda is going to determine the thickness of your slime.
  6. Add in a little less than 1 tbsp of contact solution (we use the saline solution just from Walmart!) and mix. It will begin to thicken instantly. Just keep stirring! I let mine sit for a minute to let the activator really get working.
  7. When it pulls away from the bowl, pull it out and knead. It may be sticky still. Knead it for a few minutes and if necessary add a little bit more contact solution. Be careful not to over activate it!
  8. Put in your slime container and add 3 googly eyes to the top.
  9. Cut a strip of blue construction paper to add to the slime container. I just taped mine in place.

There you go! Isn’t it adorable? Don’t forget to pin and to check out the new Toy Story 4 movie in theaters this June!

DIY Clothespin Birds

Clothespin Birds are for sure a thing in our house. Actually, sentimentally they are one of my favorite projects lately. Why?

See this guy? Yep. He made the original birds. Probably not what you were expecting! In case you don’t follow me on Instagram this is Dustin. (Wait. Whhhhaaaat?! You totally should. It’s full of fun stuff, if I do say so myself.)

Our story (Cliffsnotes edition)

I met him when I was 15 at my very first job. I was a florist at a grocery store and he worked at the meat counter. Gosh, I would flirt with him all the time. We lived in the same neighborhood and I was friends with his younger brother, so outside of work we saw each other here and there. Over the years, we grew up, had kids, got married, got divorced and reconnected. Now, we have a house, seven kids between the two of us, three dogs and he just quit his job to come blog with me full time. I’m pretty lucky to not only be with my best friend, but work with my best friend doing something that I love to do!

But the birds. This was the first DIY project I gave to Dustin to do. See, he’s an amazing cook. (Allllll these recipes? They are his. All the recipes on our slow cooker/Instant Pot site? Yeah. Those are his too.) Crafting though? Well, he’s getting better. Better-ish. But these cute little birds are so easy that literally anyone can do it. Even Dustin. 🙂

Our kids thought they were pretty cool too. So we seriously have a flock of clothespin birds at our house. Luckily, we’ve found some great uses for them. Sometimes, they are great bookmarks. Sometimes, we use them as chip clips in the pantry. We’ve added magnets to the back of some for the refrigerator so they can hold school papers and art work. And some, well, some are just put around our daughter’s room for decoration. And for holding notes. Notes are very important.

DIY Clothespin Birds: Crafts For Kids

To make the clothespin birds, you will need:

  • Clothespins (Buy them online. I thought these would be easy to find, and maybe it was just my stores, but it took me forever and I ended up buying expensive ones at the craft store. I tried big box stores and the dollar store without any luck. I wish I would have just picked them up on Amazon and been done!)
  • Acrylic Paint – Your choice of colors (For small children you can use tempera paint)
  • Paint Brushes
  • Feathers
  • Googly Eyes (Small ones)
  • Orange foam sheet
  • Glue (I used a low temperature hot glue gun, but Elmer’s glue would work too!)

Instructions for making clothespin birds:

DIY Clothespin Birds: Crafts For Kids

  1. Pick out the paint colors that you wish to use. We used pastel colors for our birds.DIY Clothespin Birds: Crafts For Kids
  2. Paint your clothespins in the color of your choice. The paint will dry quickly, but be sure to allow it to fully dry.

Rot, The Cutest In The World Book activity

I have loved books since I was little. REALLY loved books. When I was little I would pretend my books were the library. I made little pockets on the inside of them. And when I ran out of pockets, I lovingly drew library cards on the inside covers. I would then make my little brothers (who really had no interest in them) check books out. I would show them all of the good ones to take back to their rooms.

And then I would be the enforcer to go and collect the library fines that they then owed me. I’m pretty sure that part was just because we couldn’t just play something quietly and nicely all day. You know, mix it up. How can someone ruin a fun, quiet game of library? Turn all Incredible Hulk on them and demand fines.

I may have lost my love for library fines, but I’ve never lost my love of books. Even kids’ books. As a teacher and a parent, our library was always full (no hand drawn library cards or fines…) One goal I had for both my classroom and my home was to make sure that I passed down a love for reading. I wanted books to come alive and for the kids to learn that they can take you to some pretty amazing places. So creating fun snacks or art projects to go along with them became our thing.

Psst! Are books, fun snacks and literacy based art projects your thing too? Join our It’s a Fabulous Read: Kids’ Edition Book Club! It’s a virtual book club based upon themes where we share fun projects and snacks for you to do at home or in your classroom! And it’s free. And fun.

And if you are looking for a virtual book club for adults you can join us here! I admit, there aren’t as many fun art projects or snacks, but it is a fun group to join and read along with!

But back to Rot. Rot The Cutest In The World is an adorable book we received recently. It is by Ben Clanton, which explains all of the adorable illustrations.

Rot Book Activity & Craft For Kids

Rot is a mutant potato. Like most mutant potatoes, Rot loves all sorts of games and contests. So when he sees a sign for the “Cutest in the World Contest,” he can’t wait to enter.

But when Rot realizes who he’s up against—an itty-bitty baby bunny, a little-wittle cuddly kitten, and an eenie-weenie jolly jellyfish—he loses confidence. Will the judges find room in their hearts for an adorable mutant potato?

Rot Book Activity & Craft For Kids

In the end, Rot finds out that he is just perfect as he is. It is a sweet but also fun and silly book that teaches a great lesson in self confidence! If you don’t have Rot, The Cutest In The World yet in your library, I highly recommend it!

Check out our Rot, The Cutest In The World Book activity!

To go along with our book, we made our very own Rot. And you can too with items you probably have laying around!

You will need for our Rot, The Cutest In The World Book activity:

Rot Book Activity & Craft For Kids

Rot is a potato. He’s not made to be perfect, because he is perfectly imperfect. Cut an oval-ish shape for your Rot out of a brown paper bag. And then, crumble it all up into a ball. Unfold your paper and you should have something similar to what is shown here.

Rot Book Activity & Craft For Kids

Next out of white construction paper, cut out 2 large oval shapes for eyes and 3 half circle shapes for his teeth. Again, no need for perfection for these!

Rot Book Activity & Craft For Kids

Glue the two eyes on. Using a black marker or a Sharpie, draw his two eyeballs and his nostrils.

Rot Book Activity & Craft For Kids

Rot has some pretty serious eyebrows. Cut some pipe cleaners and glue in place. He also has a pretty great smile. Bend a pipe cleaner into a smile shape and glue as well.

Next, glue in place those pearly white teeth of his. And finally, cut a few more pipe cleaners to glue on the back of Rot for his hair. Isn’t he cute? Definitely the cutest in the world.
