WHAT IS EASTER SLIME ALL ABOUT?

Easter slime recipes are about more than just having fun with stretchy, slimy slime.  Slime is a wonderful way to help children foster a love of science and chemistry. Slime is formed when a chemical reaction between materials in the glue and the boron in the laundry starch or borax. This reaction alters the chemical bond of the materials, combining them into long polymer chains. This process is similar to how most flexible plastics are made today.

We make an edible jellybean slime recipe because it’s a fun way to combine science and sensory experiences with Easter, and you can eat it, too!

The key to making an edible slime is usually heat. Edible slime is often created by making a taffy-like substance and bringing sugar to the soft ball stage of heat. This keeps the mixture smooth and stretchy but it retains its shape. You’ll also want to have corn starch on hand to remove some of the stickiness of the slime. But remember, any edible slime will be quite sticky, so make sure you make it in a place where sticky hands can be easily washed after playing with and eating the slime.

We like making edible slime as an alternative to borax slime and laundry starch slime. We’ve also made a taffy slime, a baking soda slime (not edible), and a Peeps slime.

By Peter Seifert, WBTV Marketing ProducerThere’s nothing like getting together with a group of friends on the weekend, firing up the grill, drinking some ice-cold brews and playing a game of Turkey Sticks.

You probably have no idea what that is because it’s a yard game my group of friends play. And we didn’t know its actual name. Plus, we added a rule or two to make sense.

Regardless, yard games add that missing element to an afternoon of chilling with your crew. There are so many yard games out there that I know you’re missing out on some fun. So, I come to you with some of the greatest yard games out there and how to play them!

Turkey Sticks

Google searches gave me multiple names for this, but the one I liked best was “Frisbeer.” This is my personal favorite yard game to play! Go here for the rules.Bonus rule: If you do not have the frisbee, you can try and sneak over to the other team’s bottle and slap it down with your hands. If they see you, they scream Turkey and try to hit you with the frisbee before you get back to your side. 2 points if you get the bottle. 1 point if they hit you with the frisbee. (This is how we chose the name ‘Turkey Sticks.’)

Bocce

You can either play this game in a designated area or explore a whole area. I’ve played this with up to 50 other people before. We just had a bunch of sets and combined them.

KanJam

I’ve played this once and it was really fun. And it’s fairly simple to set up and play.

Cornhole

Via Moody Air Force Base

This is the most “Go-To” yard game there is. But if you have arguments on scoring… Here’s the official rules.

Spikeball

This game was on Shark Tank and has a lot more physical activity. But, it looks like a blast!

Beer Pong Golf

If you like beer pong, cornhole and golf… you’re going to LOVE this!

Ladder Golf

I think the only reason it has the word golf is because golf balls are involved. But no golf skills are required!

1.Mud SlimeRainforest Mud Slime with poison dart frogs

Oh my goodness – this mud slime recipe I created is absolutely fantastic! It doesn’t make a mess, it stores great in an airtight container, and we’ve been using and reusing it on a daily basis. You can find the entire recipe with tips on the mixing process here. It’s great for playing with trucks, farm animals, dinosaurs, and all sorts of “get in the dirt” play. It DOES store well in an airtight container, however after a month or 2 it was pretty sticky.

2. Fluffy Slimewhite Fluffy Slime ball

This fluffy slime recipe is my son’s favorite. He absolutely adores this slime because it’s just so darn fluffy. This is our “go to” slime recipe that feels the best, stretches the best, and stores the longest the best!

Ingredients needed:

1/2 cup glue 1/2 cup shaving cream 1/2 cup foaming hand soap 3 pumps of hand lotion 1 Tbsp. cornstarch food coloring 1 tsp. Borax

Directions:

  1. Combine 1/2 cup of liquid glue and 1/2 cup of shaving cream. Mix well.
  2. Add in 1/2 cup of foaming hand soap. Mix well.
  3. Add 1 Tbsp. cornstarch. Mix well.
  4. Add 3 pumps of hand lotion and desired food coloring. Mix well.
  5. PRE-MIX 1 tsp. Borax with 1 cup hot water. Once COMPLETELY dissolved add the solution 1 Tbsp. at a time until your slime looks good!

We have stored this for 2-3 months now and it still works great without any issues! Hands down overall this has been his best recipe for slime to stay good over an extended period of time. If he wants to play with slime this is the recipe that he makes. Just add any food coloring or whatever you want to it to make it awesome!

3. Slime Dough

Glow in the Dark Slime Dough

Ingredients Needed:

1/2 cup of glue2 cups of shaving cream1/4 cup of liquid starch (1 Tbsp. at a time)

Directions:

  1. Combine 1/2 cup of liquid white glue with 2 cups of shaving cream and mix well until completely mixed.
  2. Add liquid starch 1 Tbsp. at a time until you achieve the desired consistency.

This recipe was my son’s 2nd favorite simply because it only needs 3 ingredients and can be made quickly! However after 1-2 months it turned into liquid (I think because of the high content of shaving cream!) and was more like real gooey slime than stretchable slime.

**This recipe AND the Fluffy Slime recipe above can EASILY be turned into Glow in the Dark or Magnetic Slime. We have had wildly HUGE success with both versions. We purchased this glow in the dark powder and this magnetic powder to mix and my son sells them like hot cakes! Start by adding 1/2 tsp. of either into your batch and add more if needed.

4. Edible Slime Recipe

Chocolate Edible Slime

Ingredients Needed:

8 medium marshmallows1 Hershey’s Chocolate Bar 1 Tbsp. Coconut oil

Directions: 

  1. Microwave 8 medium marshmallows for about 10 seconds and mix well. (it won’t be completely melted)
  2. Add 4 rectangles of Hershey’s chocolate bars on top and cook until melted.
  3. Spread 50/50 cornstarch and powdered sugar onto a plate. Roll dough (once cool enough to touch) in the powder mix. Continue rubbing dough into the powder mix stretch and smooshing into plate until you achieve desired consistency. (see photo below)

Chocolate Edible Slime Recipe

This edible slime recipe is DELICIOUS! It reminds me of a light chocolate chewy taffy type treat, SO good! it can be stretched and smashed just like slime, although with a thicker consistency. This is best eaten right after being made. By the next day it will become just a lump that still stretches some but is nowhere near the original recipe (although still very tasty!)
