Pintrest Post: Glowing Mt. Dew? It doesn’t work!!

So there are loads of popular pins on Pinterest that get re-pinned over and over again and I am featuring one today. Most of my Pinterest Posts are about the pins that I find, try and enjoy or used. However, this post will be about one that is totally FAKE!

Glowing Mt. Dew

Glowing Mt. Dew how-to?

Now this has been proven on other websites that this project is indeed fake. The video showing how to make this bottle of glowing Mt. Dew with baking soda and hydrogen peroxide has been altered somehow to show that it does work. You can find it here. I canĀ guaranteeĀ first hand now that this how-to does NOT work and it is a hoax to mess with or troll people. Why? I don’t know. But I sure wasted time and a tiny bit of money trying this out. Ha-ha they sure got me! *eye roll*

So please do me a favor, stop re-pinning this particular project on Pinterest (like my use of alliteration? LOL). Pin this one instead!! Share how it is fake, not how cool it sounds or might be! Please pass on knowledge and encourage others to re-pin for a less ignorant internet!! Huz-ah!!

“Melties Goop”

Here is a fun project to play with your kids! When I was a little girl in Sunday School, one of the teachers made this for us. I had to figure out how to make it again for my daughter. I don’t have a name for it so I asked my 5 year old what it should be called and well, we now call it “Melties” or “Melties Goop”. It’s also a great tool to teach your kids about liquids and solids. This goop stuff is quite easy to make and takes no time at all! Here is what you need:

2/3 cups cornstarch
1 teaspoon Borax
2/3 cups hot water

Instructions: In a bowl pour out the cornstarch and then add the borax. Mix that powder combo together and then add your hot water. Mix it well. The mixture will be thick and hard so I would suggest using your hands or a fork. If it’s too powdery then add a tiny bit of water, if it’s too watery then add a little bit more cornstarch. You can tell that it’s done by playing with it. If left alone, it’ll look like melted cream of sorts. If you touch it, it’ll firm up.

FUN! You can roll up a ball and feel it as a firm substance. Then put the ball down onto the plate and watch it slowly melt back into a liquid state. We played for an hour and a half with this. Enjoy!
