I went to bed last night and there was a dollop of slime on my bed sheet. I had to strip the bed before I could get in and go to sleep.
There were traces of slime up the stairs too, and on the landing, and no doubt if I went into my daughter’s bedroom the culprit would be found red handed?
You see, Star is obsessed with slime. Not your ordinary, buy in a tub, slime. But home made, make your kitchen look like there has been and explosion of alien pie, slime. She watches videos on YouTube on how to make it. She watches videos on people playing with it. She watches videos of slime, slime and even more slime.
She says that it makes her feel calm. She tells me that some of the videos she watches are sensory and she loves to hear the sounds that slime makes in someone else’s hands.
My girl is weird!
Yesterday she made two different types of slime. One was with Borax (yes, I had to order it online, I’d never heard of it before but apparently it’s a laundry starch) warm water and pva glue. The other was body lotion and cornflour.
If you want to try a UK version of this slime recipe (And I’m sure we will be at some point) then take a look at Someone’s Mum’s post on Rainbow Glitter Slime.
