Let's Get Slimy!

Slime is a great craft activity that is both fun and educational. Not only is it fun to play with, but it is also fun to make and a great learning opportunity in chemistry for kids. You can also get creative with this basic recipe for slime by mixing colors, adding in glitter or glow-in-the dark paint, and playing with the consistency. This recipe of slime is safe for children of all ages compared to the more common slime recipes that include borax as one of its ingredients. If you want to make it edible, switch out the watercolor paint for edible paint (although we can’t promise it’ll taste good!).
