This homemade slime recipe will keep kids busy for hours. (You’re welcome moms.)
I was about six years old when Mattel first introduced ready-made slime to the world - and I freaking loved that stuff!
I would play with the green goo for hours.
Some say slime is good for helping children regulate their emotions. I’m not sure it regulated mine, but I did love the way it oozed through my fingers.
Slime’s popularity declined for a while and was revived around 2015 when a whole new generation of slime-lovers were born.
With summer break in full swing, you are no doubt looking for something fun to do with the kids.
How about making slime?
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED
12 oz Elmer’s Glue
2 tbsp saline solution
1 1/2 tbsp baking soda
Glitter paint or food coloring (optional)
HOW TO MAKE IT
Pour glue into a large container, add baking soda and mix with large spoon.
Add in a few drops of food coloring or colored glitter paint and saline solution.
Mix into the slime until it forms together and continue working the mixture until it loses most of the stickiness.
See? Easy peasy
