Holiday fun this way


I’m not sure what it is about slime, but something has taken ahold of my kids lately and it is all the rage! We’ve tried a lot of the various concoctions for our own slime recipe over the last year and I found my favorite one! How to make slime without Borax meaning it is totally safe for the kids, even if accidentally digested. Because we all know how tempting that gooey slime can be once created.

Since they love it their homemade slime 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 this season and the fluffy slime recipe below can be used to make slime anytime of the year. It’s a surefire way to get the older kids excited.

We had been making slime with Borax in it using this recipe, until a friend’s kid stuck it in their mouth. And I completely freaked out! So we searched for a safer alternative and ended up with the colorful explosion of slime that is fluffy, safe and everyone loves.

After this we even found a way to make the slime on purpose edible with marshmallow creme and stuck it in a cake! You can see that post right here.
