This confetti slime will be a great activity for a birthday party. Even though it may look like it tastes good it is not meant to be eaten, tasted, or put anywhere near your mouth. Make sure that you are only playing these kinds of sensory play activities with children who can tell the difference between food and slime. If you do play with smaller kids make sure there is always an adult present to help.

If you have young children, then you are aware of slime craze! With school out for the summer, it’s a great time to make slime with the kiddos. And since July 4th is not that far, this Patriotic Slime is the perfect way to get some red, white, and blue incorporated into your child’s play time. Two of the great things about slime is that it is so easy to make and the ingredients are pretty inexpensive. To store for play later, put the slime into a zip-close baggie or a plastic or glass jar. It will stay for at least a couple weeks. To make it last longer, have your children wash their hands before playing. And it’s always best to have them wash their hands after playing, too!

This fun slime contains orbeez, and if you don’t have them, you can use water beads if you like. They are cheaper then orbeez in my opinion. Whichever one you prefer to use they both work great. The more you stir the slime will become less sticky and you will eventually have a smooth slime that is non-sticky.
