Give The Gift of Slime

It is funny how so many great things from when I was younger just keep coming back.  Slime is definitely one of them.  And let me tell you the slime of today is nothing like the slime of yesterday – now the possibilities seem endless.

Like many families we have made our own slime.  Sometimes the concoctions come out great while other times a total bust.  Mine always seem to come out more putty like than slime like.  That isn’t as cool as you’d think for teenagers.

But real slime?  They can’t get enough of it and neither can the younger kids.

Check out this awesome Unicorn Poop Slime and Emoji Poop Slime by Kangaroo Manufacturing.  OMG the fun with poop products seems to be everywhere and my kids are not immune to the attraction.  It helps that my husband is an elementary school principal and constantly cracking jokes to the kids about poop… Yup it is that entertaining.

Or what about their Jurassic World Indoraptor Cryptogenic Slime, Original Super Cool Slime or Glow In The Dark Slime.

My daughter was all about the Unicorn Poop Slime while my son immediately scoffed up the Jurassic World slime.  So very like their personalities.

As she was trying to get it out of the bottle it even made “poop” like noises.  She started laughing hysterically.

Emoji Poop Slime and Glow In The Dark Slime, $4.95 each, make terrific stocking stuffers, dreidel game or classroom Secret Santa gifts. Likewise, Unicorn Poop Slime appeals to the daintiest kids on your list. Jurassic World Slime in Indoraptor black or T. Rex Cryptogenic green guarantee a dino-good time of hands-on fun.   They are also available in 3 packs on Amazon.

Each themed glop comes in an appealing container that resembles a chemistry beaker. Tilt it, pour it and let the squishing begin. Surprise each recipient on your list with a little science lesson. Tell them to enjoy their non-Newtonian fluid! Then watch them “Google” the chemistry lesson. Kids already familiar with the slow drip of ketchup or honey will recognize the same properties in gooey slime.

If there’s a budding scientist in the house, consider The Original Super Cool Slime Lab ($12.95). The boxed kit boasts 18 pieces, including measuring cups, mixing sticks and a slime activator that results in a jar of glitter slime, glow in the dark and multi-color slime. Now that’s super cool!  We can’t wait to use this kit because I am sure it is far better than me making it from scratch on my own!

Look for these kid-pleasing presents online and at craft, party and specialty stores including TJ Max, Marshalls, HomeGoods, AC Moore, Party City, Learning Express and Hobby Lobby shops nationwide.
