Making slime is a cheap and fun activity that continues to spark curiosity and engross teens and kids alike. The slime craze has become so widespread that your local superstores are rushing to stock on glue since it is the essential ingredient used in the preparation of slime. Sliming is a very easy way to keep your kids working with their hands and away from electronics for hours. The entire process of making slime is a fun science experiment, and you can add more or less of any ingredient to produce a vastly different result. The secret is to play around with the ingredients until you come up with the recipe you love. Just like art, slime is subjective. People like different degrees of sliminess, stickiness, and textures. To help you get started, we’ve outlined some add-in ingredients to slime that you might want to try out in search of your perfect combination.

I normally hate the color orange, and the only reason why I got this was because I was going to mix it with a few things and experiment. But, all on it’s own, this color is lovely! Like shiny Navel oranges, or a sunset. Needless to say, I haven’t mixed it with anything else. 🙂
This happens to be one of the cheapest ways to make your slime. You can make a batch of slime then once you have it already prepared, you can add some rock salt in it to make it crunchy. You can either use the naturally occurring rock salt or you could go for the colored ones. Colored rock salt creates beautiful, highly reflective slimes that you will have fun squishing. It makes for an amazing sensory activity and works as a perfect seasonal science.
