Make your own non toxic slime

Filed Under: kids, Crafts

Let's face it. What little boy or girl doesn't like to get dirty or slimy? I know my little toddler sure does. Help yours along by starting your own slime making project. Just be prepared for them to go right in the bathtub after this fun and easy project gets them...hmmm...what's the word? Slimy!


Materials:
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 1 medium stainless steel bowl
  • Food colorings

Steps:

In a medium sized stainless steel bowl, combine the water and cornstarch. Knead with your hands until it becomes a gooey, dough like consistency. Add more cornstarch if it is too runny or add more water if it is too thick.

After you have reached the thick, smooth desired consistency, separate your batch of newly made slime into 3 or 4 portions and add food color to each slime ball.

Now you are ready to think of a few things to do with all that slime you've made. Let your kids get up to their elbows in the stuff. After all, this recipe is for non toxic slime and should provide hours of fun for your child.
