If you have some free time and first of all if you feel like doing some DIY experiments, we’ve got something for you. Go to the kitchen and… prepare some non-toxic slime! Your kids will love the pulp!
The preparation is really easy and it is not going to take you more than 5 minutes. Thanks to natural ingredients, the matter is safe for kids of any age. Let’s get down to work then!
• corn starch
• linseeds, basil seeds or chia seeds
• food dye
Mix a quarter glass of seeds with half a kilo of corn starch. In another container mix 2.5 glasses of water with a few drops of food dye (3-5 will do)
Add the dyed water to the starch mixed with seeds and mix it all well. Your hands will do it best.
After a few minutes the seeds will start absorbing water and the pulp will begin to thicken. If there are any lumps, mash them with your fingers.
When the pulp gets homogenous, it means that the non-toxic toy slime is ready.
When the fun is over, you can keep the slime in a refrigerator in a sealed container. It should be fine for a week. However, make sure it isn’t moldy before you let your kids play with it.
