All About the Slime Trend

May 19, 2017 12:00 AM

slime, children activities 

It seems as though kids become easily obsessed with the coolest new toys and then disregard them even faster. Welcome to the world of trends. The latest fad to catch on is slime. Yes, you heard right, homemade gloopy, slime. It’s not only fun for them to make, but it will keep them occupied for hours on end. So don't be surprised to find the sludgy stuff on your ceiling soon.

How to Make Slime

Some toys require careful assembly and a lot of focus; others are simply bought and pop out of a box. The best thing about the trend that's taking over the playground is that kids can make it at home. It’s the perfect opportunity for some bonding time over making slushy slime together. There are a few recipes to try so they can achieve the ideal consistency.

It's made with a mixture of glue, water and borax. But, to make the best slime with your friends, and this, in the form of experience, you must come to one of Mad Science's summer camps! You can learn how to make the best slime!

Take Your Slime to the Next Level

There are so many ways to make slim even more fun. Add food colouring or liquid watercolour paint to the slime to turn it into vibrant colors. If you want to add some texture and make your slime sparkly, then add some sequins, beads and, of course, glitter. There are many slime videos about what you can add to your mixture to create slime that will blow everyone away. Some children have been inventing all kinds of concoctions out of everything from toothpaste, to hand sanitizer! The slime trend is having a positive impact by bringing out the ingenuity in kids.

Make Science Fun for Children

Children are not always easily entertained and can lose focus quickly. That's where fun science comes in. By creating things and helping them with interactive projects, they won't only learn, but they'll actually have fun too. Mad Science helps to show kids how to create, invent and explore whilst learning simultaneously.

So instead of having a clown at your child’s birthday party, think about a fun creative science workshop, which will make lasting memories. Making slime combines art, science and even an entrepreneurship, as kids are trading their slime with friends and neighbours. So get creating some slime for endless amounts of laughter and amusement.
