About this deal
We all know that children will wipe eyes with messy hands or try to sneak a taste test so just keep this in mind. There is some minor risk but the benefits of this type of play far outweigh those risks in my opinion – especially if you are using the recipes below rather than the current popular options made with materials like Borax, starch and PVA glue which I prefer not to use around young children. And even better… you will be saving money too! What defines a slime recipe? Cut up different sized and coloured kitchen sponges and scourers and encourage children to squish, create patterns and paint with the slime. If you have children who don't like messy hands just clip a peg to the sponges so they aren't touching the slime yet. This safe slime recipe is made using simple ingredients. The only “non-natural” ingredient in this tutorial is the bubble bath, but you can customize and choose whatever brand you like.
For younger children and babies you can help do this step with them of course and I usually make it a little firmer rather than too slippery so they can grasp and manipulate easier.You really don't need precise measurements for this one – I don't think I have ever measured the powder out, it's all about trial and error and how much you want to make. But you can start with these measurements and modify from there for a large tub.
For a firmer, blubbery type slime – Microwave for suggested time and add a little more powder to the recipe if you need to after you try your first batch. This slime recipe is best prepped the night before so the balls have time to draw in the moisture, soften and swell. To say that I’m a little late to the DIY Slime party is quite the understatement. But here it is: my recipe for DIY Slime with Bubble Bath!
1. Soapy Slippery Slime
The recipe I’m sharing here is based on my DIY 2-ingredient Bubble Bars. The point of these homemade bubble bars is to add just enough flour or corn starch to turn the mixture into a firm dough.
