Gummy Bear Slime

Austin has been asking everyday to make play dough again. You can find my post here for Edible Play dough. He loved making it and eating it. It was by far one of my favorite crafts that we have ever done and occupied him for a couple days. Anything that can keep his attention and help him be creative is worth my time! 

I was so excited about our play dough venture that I thought we would try some slime. I’ve seen the obsession with slime. It’s so fun and slippery and some how doesn’t stick to your fingers. If you haven’t seen slime Instagram videos you must, they are absolutely addicting.

I showed Austin a few different “recipes” I found and he immediately was drawn to the Gummy Bear recipe. Who wouldn’t be?! The original recipe that we tried was FAR too sticky and was meant for older kids. Austin got tangled in it and we ended up tossing it. So this is our altered version of Gummy Bear Slime! 

The slime is messy and gooey! Ours lasted maybe an hour and then it went in the trash. It’s a fun rainy day craft, but requires more hands on help than the marshmallow playdough. 

I don’t make these crafts for my kids to eat, but it is definitely a peace of mind knowing that if they do eat it they won’t get sick.

Do you have a favorite slime or play dough recipe? Let me know in the comments below!

    We made something similar with Starburst candies. The kids absolutely love this stuff, even if it goes in the trash 🙂 . Bonus – it did use up a bunch of Halloween candies!

    Interesting! Never thought of making ‘playdough’ out of gummies. My girls would definitely want to eat it.
