Fun Slime Crafts

Slime is all about fun so here I have 5 best ways in which you can use slime for playing. Each one of the following ways is very unique and I am sure you will definitely have fun.

Foam Slime

One of the great things about home-made slime is that there are so many different ways you can do it! You can make it powdery, stretchable, clay-like or you can make it crawl. I will show you how to make this cool foam slime.

Homemade Foam

You only need 4 ingredients to make this work and it is very easy to make and will last for weeks. You probably remember playing with foam as a child. It is one of our favorite functions of the senses. Buying a store-bought foam can be quite difficult. That’s why we like to make homemade foam. 

This recipe is easy to make. It is much better than the type bought in the store because it is a little lighter. You can try with different sizes of foam beads but we prefer to add more to be more similar to what you can buy in the store.

Glow in the Dark Slime

We love to use different glues to make slime and when we saw this new glow in the dark glue I had to give it a try! You can make your own glow in the dark slime using regular glue and add glow in the dark paint to it. We prefer using the glow in the dark glue since it’s less messy and needs only a few ingredients.

Kids Love That It Glows

This may be the most fun you’ve had making and playing with slime! Even adults will love playing with this slime! Kids love that it glows and it makes it even more fun to stretch and squish when you’re in the dark.

Ice Cream Slime

Before starting this activity, be sure to remind the children that they cannot eat the slime. Today, I am going to tell you how to get kids to make their own ice cream using different colored slimes.

Give each of your little ones a lump or a bowl of ice cream. Let them play with various toys such as colored stones, plastic toys, and decorations. It is a very easy craft and I am sure your kids will do most of the work all by themselves.

Rainbow Slime

Enrich any child’s emotions with this colorful slime craft. This artwork easily integrates with your children’s imaginations. To prepare this, all you need are slimes with different colors of the rainbow, a dark black board, and a thought. Let the kids make their own rainbow using different colored slimes by making slime logs and placing them on the board. 

With this craft, you can teach the kids VIBGYOR ( the color pattern of the rainbow).

Slime Sun Catchers

Slimes are a wonder craft for summer camps. Slime sun catchers are perfect for kids summer camp activity. This idea was mistakenly discovered when someone dropped a certain slime. Inadvertently left it dry to lead to a sturdy, slime that gave them the idea. 

It Will Take 2 to 3 Days to Dry the Colored Slimes

This project is best done on the first day of camp because it will take 2 to 3 days to dry the colored slimes. All you have to do is apply your pre-cut slimes, put the mixed colors in a container, and leave to dry. Once hardened, children can show their sun catchers in their homes. Stick in the windows to capture the beautiful rays of sunlight.

You can also add beautiful googly eyes in all different sizes. But if you have really little ones, leave your eyes out so they don’t eat by accident.

Fluffy Sand Slime

The COOLEST part about this slime recipe is that you don’t need coloring! That means less dirt for everyone. Instead, this slime is made of various colors of artistic sand. You can mix colors up or make one cool color.

It’s just amazing and it’s more amazing to play with it. Hopefully, this sand slime will keep kids busy for hours! This, hands down, the coolest slime I ever made.  Clear glue allows sand colors to be more vibrant! 

When kids see Elmer’s Glue anywhere, they always ask if we can make this sand move along with it. For teachers, Elmer’s Glue and Glue Sticks are the foundation of the classroom. If you don’t have clear glue on hand, regular white glue will work as well.
