Today we made some awesome slime eggs that were super easy. We have made this type of slime previously but it has been awhile and I forgot how great the end result is. When we were playing with it today, I had a light bulb moment to put the slime in plastic Easter eggs to form it into the shape of an Easter egg. My son loved it! First of all he loves to crack eggs so he got to do it repeatedly. Second of all, that first big squish when he would put the wiggly egg in his hand was so fun! Finally, we added a small knife so he could slice all the eggs. This was a good, solid 60 minutes of toddler entertainment.
The only tricky part is getting the ingredients. It is equal parts liquid starch (find in the laundry detergent aisle) and clear glue. For some reason, clear glue is very hard to find and have to admit not that cheap. But worth it for this slime. It lasts for weeks if you keep it in a jar.
These would be fun to make on April’s Fool Day in white to replace the real eggs! Or make 1/2 dozen and put inside an egg carton to give as a gift on Easter.
