Colorful Slime

My kiddo started going to preschool a couple of afternoons a week. One day, upon his return, he discovered this invitation to play with some slime I had mixed up while he was away having fun. I just mixed equal parts of white glue and liquid starch then added some food coloring. The more you play with it the less sticky it gets.

I added some cookie cutters, but L wasn't too interested in them. He much rather see how far he could stretch the slime until it broke.

He also enjoyed making impressions with his hands. When we were finished for the day, I stored the slime in separate containers to play with again. I ended up throwing it away after a week, but that was only because my guy tried to combine all the colors and it became a less than appealing color. 

This was a sticky, stretchy way to play. Have you ever played with slime? 


  1. Slime is wonderful. I love the handprints. Thanks for sharing at the Sunday Showcase! :)

  2. This looks so much fun! I've featured this on The Sunday Showcase this week:
