It's the latest craze among kids (especially preteen girls).....It's Homemade SLIME!!!!!
Remember the Silly Putty we used to play with? Same type of thing.....they are able to fidget with it and be creative!
Here's a simple recipe:
Ingredients: Elmer's Glue, Baking soda, shaving cream (foam not gel), Foaming Hand Soap, Food coloring or glitter, contact solution.
Directions: Using a wooden spoon or a popsicle stick, mix together one bottle of glue with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in a bowl. Add about 1/4 cup shaving cream. Keep stirring until the ingredients are worked together. Add a drop of food coloring and keep stirring. For extra fluffiness, add a pump of foaming hand soap and stir until mixed well. While continually stirring, start squirting in contact solution a little bit at a time. The consistency will start to change as it comes together. Keep adding contact solution until you see it starting to not stick to the bowl. Once you can touch the slime without it sticking to your hands, take it out of the bowl and knead it on the table. Add more drops of contact solution if still to tacky. Be careful to not add too much because it will get to hard and rubber-like. Keep Slime in plastic ziplock baggies or plastic storage containers.
