Searching for slime recipes? I completely understand. If there is one thing my kids love to do, it is to play with their hands. All three of my boys will spend long periods of time up at the table if they’ve got something unique to play, and they all get excited about science experiments. Making slime is a great way to teach kids about the properties of polymers. Is slime a liquid or a solid? It is tough to tell! But did you know that there are a lot of different ways to make and play with slime? The web is full of unique and interesting ways to get the most out of slime. And it is easier to make than you might think!
Here are some great slime recipes from around the web, so you can start having some fun! Here you’ll find not only variations in the recipe but also ideas for play. (Did you know you can make slime without borax? You absolutely can!)
