With Disney·Pixar’s Coco movie coming to theaters, November 22, it only made sense to make a fun inspired craft. My son was determined to make slime the other day so I was on a mission to find Coco inspired craft items to put in the slime. While I had to go to several stores, I finally found these sugar skulls and flower confetti pieces at Joann Fabrics along with the other supplies on the list. There are many different slime recipes but this one is easy and I like it the most. Have fun with it and be creative!
