DIY Slime Kits

Every so often, I think about how much more fun Nickelodeon was when I was younger. Double Dare, Figure It Out, you know, places where their trademark green slime made its appearance. It was always entertaining to watch the various reactions to getting “slimed” and I always wondered what it must be like, as it looked fun.

Of course, now that I’m an adult, I look at Nick’s slime and I kind of make a face as I consider the clean up efforts.

Nowadays, there are so many DIY slime kits and recipes that it’s literally a Google search away. You can make your own slime that acts like a liquid as you handle it, and more like a gel when you are not. Cleaning up is as easy as putting it into a plastic container!

The best part is that you can make it with your child or simply give them the ingredients and watch them make it themselves. The satisfaction of making something is unlike anything, and crafts are excellent stimulation for a child at any age. Just beware of getting “slimed” yourself!
