We love making different colors for some festive fun. The children love to gather all the material before starting. They think it’s so FUN to make as well as play with for hours! A lot of the time, they just love the texture and feel of the homemade slime while reading or watching TV.

I usually double the recipe because I love to play with it too. I’m one of those sensory persons that loves to play with it while I’m working on the computer. We decided to make gold slime for St. Patrick’s Day.
