I actually love this slime recipe for many different reasons. First off, it looks really cool.
And secondly, it’s versatile to be able to create as use. As most of you know, we like to make things in our homes that are around seasons, holidays, or events. This Celebration Slime is perfect for the 4th of July, summer birthdays, or just as a fun sensory activity that we’re going to work into our summer curriculum.
I often get asked if there can be too much glitter added to this slime recipe…and is there really a “thing” as too much glitter? While the recipe calls for a certain amount, you can alter that depending on your wants.
And if you don’t want to have any glitter in your slime, you can take it out completely if you want. It’ll change the appearance but your child will still get to have fun with the slime!
The Importance of Playing with Slime
I get it…slime can be a bit overwhelming at times when you stop and think about the process. But instead of looking at it in a way that it’s overwhelming and messy, stop and think about the ways that it can be helpful for your child as well.
Slime is great for creativity and imagination and it’s actually a really good way to work on sensory skills, too. And if you’re looking for a way to work on fine motor skills, slime can help with that as well.
Every time we make slime, it’s always ended up being something that the kids stretch, catch, mold, and overall use their brains and imagination with the whole time.
They’ll literally sit down and play for hours with slime and it’s amazing to watch them get some delight out of something so simple to make!
