Making slime is a cheap and fun activity that continues to spark curiosity and engross teens and kids alike. The slime craze has become so widespread that your local superstores are rushing to stock on glue since it is the essential ingredient used in the preparation of slime. Sliming is a very easy way to keep your kids working with their hands and away from electronics for hours. The entire process of making slime is a fun science experiment, and you can add more or less of any ingredient to produce a vastly different result. The secret is to play around with the ingredients until you come up with the recipe you love. Just like art, slime is subjective. People like different degrees of sliminess, stickiness, and textures. To help you get started, we’ve outlined some add-in ingredients to slime that you might want to try out in search of your perfect combination.
What could be more fun than playing with snow? You might have a little artificial snow left from last Christmas’s crafts shopping. Rather than throw it out, be creative and use it as an ingredient for your slime projects. Fake snow is shimmery and very light-weight, which means you get to create a light and fluffy slime and it only takes just a few minutes to whip up. It maintains the stretchiness of the slime without overwhelming the original texture of the slime.
