Peep Slime Recipe
Can you believe that you only need three simple ingredients to make this slime? And once Easter happens, you just might have some leftover Peeps lying around the house just waiting to be used.
- 1 2.5 oz package of peeps (8 peeps)
- 1 teaspoon cooking oil
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
You’re not going to believe how simple this recipe is!
Place the Peeps in a large microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave for 30 seconds allowing peeps to fluff up.
My kids love watching this part. They get so big!
Add in oil and cornstarch. We don’t want to make a sticky mess when we touch the Peeps.
Mix until you have a smooth consistency and a thick slime.
Keep slime from sticking to your hands by adding a bit more cornstarch.
I would add this little by little so you don’t overdue it. You can always keep adding in more if you really do need it.
Slime is a huge hit in our house the kids like to add toys and just love playing with its texture.
Ways to Play with Slime
There are so many ways that your child can play with slime. They can simply hold it and try to make it into a round ball or stretch it out as far as they can.
Ask your kids what happened to the Peeps to change their texture and how they went from an edible treat to a fun slime that you can play with. Conversations are a great way to engage and keep activities going, too.
What else can you turn into slime? See what ideas your kids come up with! It’s a wonderful way to explore different food products in your home.
Grab a piece of paper and have them write down some fun ideas on what they want to try to do with their slime. This will teach them to plan ahead, and also work on some writing skills, too.
Then, when they’re ready to try something else with their slime, they’ll have their notepad handy and ready to remember what it was that they were wanting to do.
