I don’t know about you but I am surrounded these days by SLIME lovers. I decided to take the slime craze one step further than making it and playing with it. I created a SLIME Time book (printable) that can be used to get kiddos thinking creatively and even writing. The book has several super fun activities for kids to complete, of course AFTER they make their own batches of slime!
Making slime is super cool. I have been making it for more than 25 years. I first made it when I was teaching first grade and we read Bartholomew and the Ooblek by Dr. Seuess. It is a great story about a gooey green substance, Oobleck, fell from the sky and wreaked havoc in the kingdom. If you want to create a literature connection, I suggest you get the book! You can grab it on Amazon (PRIME even) HERE.
Okay, so the recipe! Here you go.
It is so fun. Gather your ingredients first.
My favorite part is when the warm water gets added.
There are lots of great activities in this book that I created to use this awesome opportunity to get creative. Kids are great with their imaginations when they have a tool like slime as a vehicle. You can get the printable book in my TpT store HERE.
One of my favorite activities in the book allows kids to become the mayor of Slimeville and invent the city, including the making of a map!
Slime is totally a craze. Make the most of it. Create with your kids and learn together.
