How To Make Fluffy Slime
Fluffy slime seems to have become a staple in our slime-obsessed world. When I was a kid, everyone wore WWJD bracelets. When my 7-years-younger sister was a kid, everyone was obsessed with the Nintendo DS. Kids today are slime-crazed! Fluffy slime was born out of this modern obsession. 😅
Snot Slime DIY Slime Recipe
True story, I hate boogers. Blowing my nose gives me the heebie jeebies. I’m not the parent that can wipe their kids’ nose with their bare hands. 🤢 But since I know this snot slime isn’t real boogers, it’s super fun!
DIY Edible Slime
For the child who puts everything in their mouth, edible slime is a big winner. Plenty of kids out grow the desire to eat everything, but not all! And I’d be lying if I said I didn’t give into the temptation to chew on a little piece of the modeling beeswax we were playing with this morning. No regrets!
