Making slime is a cheap and fun activity that continues to spark curiosity and engross teens and kids alike. The slime craze has become so widespread that your local superstores are rushing to stock on glue since it is the essential ingredient used in the preparation of slime. Sliming is a very easy way to keep your kids working with their hands and away from electronics for hours. The entire process of making slime is a fun science experiment, and you can add more or less of any ingredient to produce a vastly different result. The secret is to play around with the ingredients until you come up with the recipe you love. Just like art, slime is subjective. People like different degrees of sliminess, stickiness, and textures. To help you get started, we’ve outlined some add-in ingredients to slime that you might want to try out in search of your perfect combination.
Have you ever had a pleasing reaction to something but were unable to articulate how it makes you feel because it makes absolutely no sense? For example, I love the smell of freshly opened tennis balls. I am fully aware that the smell shouldn’t be great, it’s hardly enticing on paper. If I had to describe it, I’d say it’s a musky, muddy, petroleum, rubbery odor. Sounds great, huh? Interestingly, there is a fraction of the population who, like me, loves this smell.
Not so many slimers use plastic buttons. But when we think about it further, they make for amazing, easily accessible and affordable slime accessories. You could use buttons from clothes you don’t put on anymore or you could opt for buying a jar of buttons to use for your next slime project. Vary the sizes and colors to create even more attractive slimes. Candy buttons can create an even prettier crunchy sludge. You can use small buttons that are not so bulky, so you won’t have to worry about overwhelming the slime.
