Easter Egg Slime Recipe

I’m not sure what it is about slime, but something has taken ahold of my kids lately and it is all the rage! Since they love it so much, it seems a great option to put in the Easter eggs instead of candy. We used Elmer’s to create our slime recipe making it an easy project with no risky ingredients included. I am guessing these slime filled Easter eggs will be the hit of Sunday’s hunt, and a surefire way to get the older kids excited.

4. For the colored slime after mixing, add your choice of food coloring. Mix this and/or add more food coloring until you get the color you want. The glitter slime is already colored, so if you are making that one you can skip this step!
