Bat Slime! Make Easy Slime For Sensory Play
What Is Slime?
Is it a liquid or a solid? It stretches but then it breaks. It makes a ball and bounces. It feels slimy and wet, but it isn’t! These are some of the interesting observations my five year old made as we explored this slime recipe. Check out our article on Basic Slime Science for Young Kids to learn more about the science behind the slime! This easy slime is also one of our top 12 Favorite Tactile Sensory Play Recipes!
Borax *** this can be made with liquid starch too**
Elmer’s clear washable school glue 5oz
bat confetti or table scatter
2 bowls, spoons, cookie cutters (optional)
cookie sheet (we use the dollar store variety for projects!)
UPDATE! We made this with borax. However, all our NEWEST SLIMES ARE MADE WITH LIQUID STARCH which I like better and is even easier to make. Your slime will look just like this when made with liquid starch! Check out our easy Homemade Liquid Starch Recipe here!
Easy Slime Bat Sensory Play
My son can be a bit weary of new textures. Although this wasn’t messy on the hands once mixed, it definitely had a different feel. He did enjoy poking at it and trying to free a few bats to begin. I continued to play with it and eventually he was brave enough to pick some up and explore with it further! The verdict: let’s make easy slime everyday!
Observe, explore and discover!
Make a ball and watch it bounce!
Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes and watch them melt away!
How long will the slime flow until it breaks?
Bat slime, not to0, messy, science sensory play any day! Make easy slime!
