Calling all slime lovers! If you are reading this, you likely have a slime aficionado or two in your household. Our daughter has become a slime lover, following in the footsteps of our 11 year old neighbor. So, we had a blast working on this polka dot slime project together after school, and are so excited to share it with you!
In our household, we are huge believers in the power of play. It’s through play, that children learn valuable life skills. While we definitely offer our family significant amounts of free time to play during each week, I like to offer a few structured activities that are fun and age appropriate. We sourced this polka dot slime craft idea from our friends over at Genius at Play, a one-stop source for play ideas to build on life skills, requiring little to no preparation.
Polka Dot Slime
Ages 4+; Adult Help Needed
Prep Time: 10 minutes
- (2) 5oz bottles of clear glue (i.e. Elmer’s)
- Liquid Starch
- Colored Pom Poms (We used mini pom poms, but any size, shape or colors would be perfect)
- Mixing Bowl
- Sealed storage container or storage bag
- Pour the contents from the clear glue bottles into a bowl; preferably either disposable or something that can be put into the dishwasher following the craft.
2. Add the liquid starch to the glue mixture, one tablespoon at a time, stirring in between each addition. Repeat this process until the slime mixture is no longer sticky, stringy, or clinging to the side of your mixing bowl.
3. Knead the slime mixture to make it uniform; then, add your pom poms.
4. Store your polka dot slime mixture in a sealed container or bag for 2-3 weeks. We used individual plastic containers with lids to store ours.
