If you haven’t been slimed by Slime yet, it’s only a matter of time. I first became aware of this ‘craze’ when special ‘slimez’ account started to pop up on my daughter’s social media. If you don’t want to go to the bother of sourcing all the slime ingredients on the internet, then ready-made slime or slime kits are for you. Read about other current Toy Crazes.
Slime Is A YouTube Craze
There are loads of YouTubers making slime. Children love creating different versions and playing with it. I’m not going to list any ingredients here but you can find them all pretty easily on the internet. Many are general household and cosmetic items. Depending which of these you use, the slime will turn out rather differently. My favourite is texture is marshmallow but, of course, it’s not for eating. Slimes of all descriptions may be coloured with food colouring, paints and glitter (I honestly thought my glitter days were over).
It goes without saying that this is not something young children or pets should be playing with. Always keep your slime stuff safely out of reach of small people and pets.
My utility room has turned in to a slimey factory but I don’t mind. I quite like playing with it in the same way I quite liked the whole colouring craze.
Slime Kits Are The Easier Way To Do Slime
If you don’t want to go down the DIY route, there are some good ready-made kits to buy. Slightly easier because you only have to get one thing rather than buying it all separately.
STEM STEAM Science Experiments
Whatever you say about Slime, it does have a STEM STEAM element to it. Children love science experiments and might even learn something.
