Slime, some hate it, some love it. My boy loves it, and so I. Now that I’ve had a few days in between the great slime creation, I can write to you about how it was done, and most importantly did Big Brother have fun with it?
After doing a bit of research on kid safe slime creations (those that do not contain Borax). The recipe is very simple:
1 Cup of Cornstarch
½ cup of water
A few drops of food coloring (optional)
I used matcha green tea powder as my ‘slime green’ color and mixed it with the Honestly, any chance I can avoid going to the grocery store for small items with two babies I will.
Food coloring is on that list of small items.
Plus, it’s fun to discover what you can do with what you already have.
Admittedly, I think I had just as much fun making it as my son did playing with it! Did my son like it? As first he was very skeptical, then he just got right in there and mashed his hands all in it. Then proceeded to wipe it all over his highchair, and himself, and me. He had a bath waiting for him. There are a few reasons this is great to do 1. It’s FUN 2. Discovering new textures is always fun for little kids-and adults 3. It’s super easy
If your kid’s area little older you can explain the science behind it. Or you have your toddler stare blankly at you as you attempt to explain viscosity and Non-Newtonian liquids. It’s up to you.
I made him some more today so he will have some more fun to discover something new.
For clean up-try not to drop it all over the floor like I did. But if you do, just let it dry and sweep it up. Or use hot soapy water to mop it up. It’s easy.
That’s all for now folks!
