My kids are completely obsessed with slime. ALL kinds of slime! And honestly the mess is absolutely ridiculous when we make slime. But I do it because my kids are learning science when we test out these recipes. And I love to encourage my girls especially to be involved with scientific discovery and learning. So when I had the opportunity to check out “Slime Sorcery” I was definitely on board. We have a few basic go-to recipes that we always make for slime but this title really gave us a world of new ideas!
“Slime Sorcery” had a recipe for Snow Slime that of course intrigued us since we are in Texas and we aren’t seeing much snow anytime soon. We created a white snowy slime that was especially fluffy and with our addition of mini foam balls it really had a great feel to it. The shaving cream also made it nice and silky and my girls said it was important to note it smelled nice too. What we did learn is if you want this to be glittery add EXTRA shimmery glitter. Our glitter didn’t make a huge impact which was disappointing. Although, you’d never know since this kept the minis occupied for hours.
Our snowman slime molded well and the kids were able to easily make snowmen. We made the hat out of black card-stock and hot glue. Then the eyes are pony beads. Followed by orange popsicle sticks for the nose and arms. Simple yet effective for tons of sensory playtime! We made melted snowmen, big snowmen, mini snowmen, as well as had a very messy snowball fight. Lots of laughter ensued.
Besides just being a super fun activity we all agreed this would be a quick and simple gift for friends. My kids found little jars that they put enough “snow” into to make a snowman then attached the hat to the top and taped the other accessories to the back. They were so excited to have a little gift to give to their friends and hopefully their parents won’t hate me forever for the snowy messes attached to the gift.
