A couple of weeks ago I posted a Facebook status involving slime (like, why can’t I find glue at the store when I need it?), and boy, it resulted in plenty of conversation.
Then a few days ago I shared a photo of my son when I caught him trying to remove the evidence of slime that had gotten stuck on the ceiling in the playroom.
So, I got to thinking about slime: pros, cons, tips etc., and as a thoughtful friend & parents, I thought I would share.
Slime Recipes Tips:
*Use scented lotion to add scent.
*Use glitter for pizzazz and texture.
*Use plastic beads (current trend).
*To add color to your slime, use food coloring or acrylic paint.
*Recipes using borax work best.
*Use shaving cream to make the slime fluffy.
*Look up ‘butter’ slime, as according to my tween, it is the next slime trend.
*Keep slime in an airtight bag or container to keep it from drying out.
Pros to letting your kids make slime:
*Crafting type of entertainment
*Non -Technology activity.
*Kids love to poke and stretch and stretch it.
Cons to letting your kids make slime:
*Another mess that made and supplies to be left on the table.
*Slime can stain your ceiling should your kids decide slime should be tossed in the air or stuck to walls.
*There are chemicals involved in recipes, so making sure they wash their hands when they are done creating.
