Are your kids obsessed with slime?
With school over and summer officially starting tomorrow, this is the perfect time to tell you about edible slime. I didn't even know this was a thing. When I was a nanny, I made slime with the kids all the time. As much as I love slime, you always run the risk of kids putting it in their mouths.
That's where edible slime comes in handy because it's safe if kids (especially younger ones) taste some. I'm not saying to chow down all of it, but a little is fine.
This youtuber teaches us how to make marshmallow slime.
There are apparently many variations of edible slime. Here are three simple ones:
- Sweetened Condensed Milk (with cornstarch & sugar)
- Marshmallow (with oil, powdered sugar, & cornstarch)
- Gummy Bear (with oil, powdered sugar, & cornstarch)
