My son, like any other 5 year old, loves slime! He has been on at me to make slime with him for a while now. It wasn’t the inevitable sticky mess that was putting me off but rather the lack of knowledge of the best slime recipe. I have read about all sorts of concoctions that supposedly make the best slime but I wasn’t 100% convinced by any of them. So, when we spotted this Elmer’s Slime starter pack I knew it was for me!

The pack contains 2 clear glues, 4 glitter pens and 2 bottles of the all important magical liquid.

Using a bowl he tipped the mixtures in to the bowl and stirred well with a spoon.

You then have to knead the slime until it forms a stuff mixture.

I have to say it made fantastic slime. It washes off hands really easily which is good.

I did try to keep the slime by storing it in an airtight container but when we returned to it a few days later it hadn’t kept well at all so I would say that this makes it quite expensive for a one off activity. However, as a fun birthday present or stocking filler or Christmas present I would highly recommend this.
