Our kids always have so much fun playing with this slime. It’s a great sensory activity as the feeling of it really is like no other. Sit and play with your kids, show them that it’s not scary and enjoy the mess!
Some hints and tips when making this slime is to work quickly otherwise it will sit on the bottom of your thermo bowl and the blades will get a little stuck. As soon as you put the water in, mix it up.
What will happen is the mix will go flat on the bottom of a container. Get a spoon and scoop it up, once it hits your hands it will then act like slime and melt away.
We like to store this in an airtight container and it will last a week or so. If it goes a bit dry, add a few drops of water and mix again.
We also used non-toxic, all natural food colours. Anything we put on our skin is absorbed into the bloodstream, so we decided to use Hopper all natural food colours. Unfortunately, synthetic dyes use petroleum or coal tar as the raw stock which is something we don’t want on our kid’s skin, or in their mouth or body.
We cover a full module on artificial food dyes in our e-course Additive Free Made Easy.
