10 DIY Slime Kits for an Ooey Gooey Good Time

Slime kits are a perfect activity for the whole family.


Kids love it, parents not so much, but there’s something to be said about the appeal of slime. For the last few years, the stuff has been everywhere. From kid-led YouTube tutorials to slime-themed birthday parties, slime isn’t going anywhere any time soon. Even though many grown-ups think the stuff is downright gross, it’s not hard to understand the appeal of slime for kids. It’s fun to touch, colorful and easy to make. It’s also a great activity to do as a family, and incorporates many STEM skills


Since many of us began sheltering in place at home, certain rules have become less rigid. For instance, screen time is now unlimited in my house, as is snacking. And since kids can’t go outside as much, a lot of parents are looking for ways to entertain them inside. Once slime-free homes may now be a prime destination for slime creation.  


If you’re worried about the mess, designate slime areas, like the kitchen or the backyard, where the slime must stay. Many of the slime kits on this list are washable, so they shouldn’t cause too much damage, and making slime is a great activity that will keep kids busy for quite some time. Check out these 10 awesome slime kits below.
