Star Wars Space Slime
Follow the How To Make Gak or Slime recipe and just add black gel food coloring and gold glitter to this batch.
After mixing it up I gave it a test stretch. I love the look of the gold glitter on the black slime.
Play set up:
We often use a plastic placemat when we play with slime. We have also taken it outside on the kids picnic table. Today I tried a plastic table cloth. Not a good idea. The slime stuck to it a bit. However, it did not keep my son from having a lot of fun during slime time.
I placed the slime on the table and put all the Star Wars characters out we have or, most of them. I left Darth Vader out because he has a cloth cape on. I was questioned about my choice to leave him out. It was noticed that he was missing.
Simple is best at my house. This simple setup was all my 5 yr needed to entertain himself during nap time for little brothers.
This slime is easy to store for reuse. Just put it in a plastic container and put in the fridge after playtime.
Fun sensory play material to explore touch and sight. Lots of fun to watch as the toys sunk into it and then to see how far it would stretch.
Once he was through playing we put up the slime in a container in the fridge, put characters in the sink to be washed, and rolled up table cloth and trashed. Easy clean up!
I have a few more slime ideas on my to try list. Keep an eye out for those in the future!
