Making slime without glue is easy when you have some gelatin and a little corn syrup. These easy ingredients also make this slime technically edible if you have kids you might put it in their mouths.
It’s also a play with and toss slime as it wouldn’t store for a second round of play, so be sure to schedule a time when you can really play with it for a while before tossing!
This DIY slime also calls for psyllium husk, but doesn’t use cornstarch. A huge bonus for us, since all of our family members are allergic to corn!
It’s also a super easy slime recipe since it really only needs one ingredient and some water to make!
A truly edible slime, this slime recipe calls for gummy bears, corn starch, and some powdered sugar!

I love how stretchy this slime looks! Hours of slime fun for the whole family! 🙂
