If we are being honest, no one can really say what slime is. It’s been around for ages, but it’s still kind of a mystery. One easy way to get to the bottom of this quandary, however, is to just make it yourself — for your kids, of course, but maybe also for yourself if you still have that natural curiosity about it that most kids seem to have.
One great benefit of making slime for kids, for one, is that it may get them away from electronics for a bit. It’s entertainment value has real power in that regard — it may even be enough to keep the adults off of Netflix for an afternoon! So, how about you try out these easy slime recipes for kids, especially if yours are around elementary or middle school aged. For this recipe, all you need are a few household items and a comfortable work space for everyone involved. Now, let’s get started on making that slime!
Materials and Supplies
- White glue or glitter glue
- Shaving cream
- Contact lens saline solution
- Food coloring
- Plastic or styrofoam bowl
- Pour a ½ cup of white glue into a bowl.
- Then, add a ½ cup of shaving cream for fluff.
- Mix together the glue and the shaving cream along with a few drops of your preferred color of food coloring.
- For special effects, you also can add confetti or gems.
- To make the slime less sticky, slowly add saline solution and mix.
- Then, remove the slime from the bowl and knead it until you have reach your preferred consistency.
- You can add other trinkets to the slime to make it more fun and interesting. Some examples include emoji rings, rainbow beads, glitter (use glitter glue instead of white glue for further emphasis), or plastic stars. The options are endless, and kids can most definitely find some use for slime for games or playtime in between meals, homework, or chores.
- Hand the kids their new slime and set them loose — with boundaries, of course, since no one wants to find slime on the TV or in the couch cushions. Have fun!
