Marianna and I have a love / hate relationship with slime - she loves it and I hate it! These are crazy times though and, once the messy mat was down and the craft apron was on, I figured a temporary lifting of the ban on indoor slime was in order.
Thankfully So Slime DIY is a brand with the slime averse parent in mind. There are plenty of slime kits on the market but they're all so, well, messy. By contrast, Slimelicious is sublime. All you need to do is pour the powder and a little water in the shaker, shake it for 30 seconds, then leave it for 5 to 10 minutes to take on the proper slime consistency.
The kit also includes a mix of embellishments you can use to decorate your slime, along with two mystery charms. It's so easy you really can't go wrong. In fact, the only difficulty we had was convincing Marianna to leave the slime alone long enough for it to 'set'. It was poked and prodded constantly!
Marianna really enjoyed it though, and even I got into the spirit of things. I really liked how easy it was to make, and that you can reuse the shakers again and again. They're cute little storage containers that you can repurpose afterwards too. The powder sachets are super easy to store too if you're not looking to make up six batches of slime up all at once - we've been working our way through lots of craft kits this week and putting away the leftovers neatly is a real problem.
There are three different Slimelicious shop kits to collect: sweet shop (as pictured), ice cream shop, and soda shop. They each come with two shakers, two charms, three bags of embellishments, and six sachets of slime powder for you to make up six different coloured slimes. (Or to mix and match as you see fit, of course.)
Find them online for £9.99 each. Check out the Canal Toys website for more info and their other ranges.
