We've tried slime in the form of oobleck before--and it's fun, but oh so messy. And once you're done playing with the oobleck, you have to toss it because it does not keep well, which is kind of sad. The other day I decided to try a new slime recipe on a whim. And it was a great success. The slime was easy to make, fun to play with, and was NOT messy! It didn't stick all over our hands and didn't make a mess on the table because it stuck together so well. And it is saveable! We are happy slime campers over here.
Reed and Asher played happily with the slime for almost two hours. Lila was not so sure about the slime at first. I'd put a little glob of it in her hand and she'd immediately pull it off and put it back in the bowl. Eventually she got over her textural issues and kind of enjoyed playing with our slime.
