Cool DIY Slime for Kids

If you’re a parent, especially one that loves crafting with their kids, then we have absolutely no doubt that you already know all about slime. Colourful DIY slime has taken the crafting world by storm and our kids have adored every second of it, just like every other kid we know! Of course, we’ve made plenty of different kinds with them before, but we’ve always got our eyes peeled for new recipes and looks that they’ve never tried before.

Do you love the idea of learning how to make some new kinds of slime just as much as we do? Check out this list of 15 awesome ideas and recipes that we came across in our search for inspiration and guidance!

1. Sparkling purple galaxy slime

Maybe we’re biased because purple is our absolute favourite in the whole world, but that’s not the only thing that caught our eye when we saw this fantastic recipe and tutorial from Happy Toy Time! We also adore the sparkling nature of it and the slight shade swirl, making it look just like that galaxy print that’s so popular right now.

2. Glittering rainbow slime

Have we really caught your attention with this talk of sparkles and convinced you that glitter is definitely an ingredient your chosen recipe will simply need to have, but you’d rather work with more colours than just purple? In that case, we have a feeling you’re going to get along a little better with this fantastically sparkly pastel rainbow slime outlined in clear detail on DIY Projects for Teens!

3. Birthday cake confetti slime

Now, we know that this next recipe really looks like sprinkled frosting, and that’s part of why we like it, but we just want to make sure you and your kids know that it’s not actually something you can eat! Even so, we get a real kick out of the way Mom Luck made this cool birthday cake confetti slime that actually involves real sprinkles and reminds us of a cupcake.

4. Edible Starburst candy slime

Did we really pique your curiosity with the mention of edible slime and now all you can think about is whether there actually are slime recipes out there made from ingredients you can really eat? Then we have a feeling you’ll be rather pleased indeed to learn about this funny slime tutorial featured on Teach Beside Me that is actually edible because it’s made entirely from Starburst candies!
