Slimes were first introduced in during the 1970s. Now they’re basically sold everywhere. But, the best thing is that you don’t have to buy them because they’re easy to make at home. We scoured the internet for some of the most unique homemade slime recipes you can do at home with your kids. And, here they are!
Edible Nutella Slime
As far as we’re concerned, the entire world loves Nutella! So, let’s kick things off with a slime that’s not only fun to handle but also a yummy treat to eat. That’s right! It’s completely edible! This recipe is from Cute Life Hacks, and here’s how to make it:
● 1 tablespoon Nutella
● 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
● 200 ml or 7 ounces condensed milk
Combine all the ingredients in a pot. And in a low heat, let them melt away. When it’s all melted down, gradually increase the heat while stirring the mixture. Stir it constantly and quickly to prevent it from burning at the bottom. When the mixture thickens like a pudding, blobby with a gel-like consistency, let it cool down in room temperature until it’s cold enough to handle. And, that’s it! Let your kids play with this edible slime with clean hands. The best part about this is that they can eat it when they get tired of playing with it.
If your kids love things that glow in the dark, then this slime is for them! A Pumpkin & A Princess gives us a totally fun slime recipe that you can use as a prop for Halloween and parties. You can also put it in a jar as a fun room décor, or you can make it just because!
● 2 white glue bottles
● neon food coloring
● 3-4 tablespoons of glow-in-the-dark paint
● 1⁄2 cup warm water
● 1 teaspoon borax
Empty all the glue in a bowl. To scoop out the remaining glue inside their bottles, fill them with water; screw the lids back and shake them. Then, pour out the glue-water mixture into the bowl. Place a few drops of neon food color, and stir the concoction well. While stirring, add the glow-in-the-dark paint. Meanwhile, in a smaller bowl, mix the borax and warm water together. After that, combine the two mixtures. If the consistency isn’t working well for you, you can add more borax. Less borax gives the slime a runny and more liquid texture. The slime lasts for a few weeks. Just remember to keep your kids from eating it and putting water into it. Let it soak up some light, and enjoy its fantastic glow in a dark room!
Or Unicorn Slime… Whatever kids all call it these days. This slime is perfect for playful tea parties and creative craft projects. It comes in all kinds of colors, so it’s not limited to little girls. Learn~Play~Imagine gives us an easy recipe for this slime:
● white glue
● liquid starch
● food coloring or liquid watercolor
Obviously, this recipe is free from measurements. But, that just means your kids can go wild playing around with the ingredients. All you have to do is combine the glue and liquid starch in a bowl. This becomes the white slime. Divide it into small batches in different smaller bowls, and mix in one kind of color of each bowl. After that, you’re practically done, but kids might have to do some extra mixing to let the color merge well with the white slime to get the color that they want. To achieve the rainbow effect, collect all colored slimes together in both hands, and stretch them wide. This is enough to let the differently colored slimes stick to one another without being completely combined. Further handling of these slimes will eventually mix them together and change their color. But, kids can have fun doing that too!
