Of course, parents think that ‘slime’ is gross, and that’s probably the truth!
But kids love to mess around with it, and sometimes play like they’re “sculpting.”
Here’s how to make your own slime:
Start with a quantity of water, and slowly add cornstarch, mixing with your hand (or your child’s hand). Add enough cornstarch so that the slime feels wet when you’re pouring it, but feels dry when touched. Color can be used but do it first by adding powdered tempera to cornstarch before mixing or add food color to the water before mixing.
Is this really art? Who knows, but the kids enjoy it enormously!
