Slushie Slime

I don’t know about you, but my kids are obsessed with slime. Homemade slime, store bought slime – it doesn’t matter. Today I’m going to share a Slushie Slime Recipe that brings back memories of a favorite frosty treat. This is NOT edible, but it is lots of fun for both kids and adult kids at heart! Playing with slime is a great sensory activity for kids. Children can explore with their sense of touch, smell, sight and hearing when playing with slime. Please DO NOT let the kids eat this slime !

 

Materials:

1 airtight container

1 5 oz bottle of clear glue

½ cup water

½ tsp baking soda

1 tbsp contact solution

Coloring

Slushie Beads

Small bowl

Instructions:

In a bowl, pour the entire 5 oz bottle of clear glue.

Add in ½ cup of water.

Drop a few colors of red coloring.  We use these soap dyes.  I love them – there are a ton of colors to choose from and they don’t color your hands. Stir to mix.

Add in ½ tsp baking soda and stir.

Add 1 tbsp contact solution.  It will instantly begin to form.

Next, add in the slushie beads.

It will be STICKY!  Don’t panic!  Mix the solution in the bowl until it starts to form.

Knead the slime until it is no longer sticky.  Store in an airtight container.

 

Note: After the slime sits for a bit, the beads will rise to the top and the slime will settle to the bottom.  It’s ok – just mix it and it will go back together.  The kids thought this was super cool!
