BORAX FREE SLIME

Just about all kids love playing with slime, but some kids like to taste-test their play materials! That’s perfectly fine as long as you have some fun edible slime recipes.  Make sure to check out more than 12 borax free, taste-safe edible slime recipes we have tried!

Our traditional slime recipes use a combination of glue and borons (borax powder, liquid starch, or saline solution) to form the slime. Although this is an excellent chemistry lesson, it’s not safe to even nibble.

Even if you don’t have a nibbler, in my experience most kids love to make edible or taste-safe slimes because they are just so cool. Especially when they involve candy, and we have quite a few! If your kids love all things squishy, this pudding recipe for slime is it!

HOW TO MAKE EDIBLE CHERRY SLIME

Let’s get right to making edible cherry blossom slime with Jello pudding. Head to the kitchen, open the cupboards or pantry and be prepared to get a little messy. Your hands are the best mixing tools.

Keep in mind that this will resemble more of what we like to call a slime-dough! You can still achieve a stretchy consistency with edible slime, but it doesn’t have the same texture and consistency as our basic slime recipes.

However edible slime, like this fun cherry theme pudding slime, are highly engaging for the senses because you can do more than just feel it! Yes, you can have a nibble (we don’t recommend eating slime like a snack though), and you can also smell it!

TASTE-SAFE SLIME SAFETY

We recommend with all our taste-safe slime recipes, that you DO NOT CONSUME them in large quantities. Please consider them as more of non-toxic material and don’t encourage sampling if possible.

Some of our edible or taste-safe slime recipes use ingredients like chia seeds or Metamucil which would not be good if eaten in large quantities. These are digestive aids only! Additionally, edible slime can contain a huge amount of cornstarch or sugar.

HOW TO MAKE CHERRY BLOSSOM SLIME:

STEP 1: Pour the dry pudding mix and cornstarch into a bowl and mix well.

STEP 2: Add the water and begin to stir quickly. Don’t worry if there is clumping. Just break through the clumps with your spoon.

STEP 3: A soft and crumbly dough will take shape. When this happens, go ahead and use your hands to continue to mix and form the slime.

STEP 4: Your slime may need a little more water to take shape. If your mixture is too dry and won’t form, add a teaspoon of water at a time until you get the slime consistency.

TIP: If the mixture is too wet, sprinkle in equal parts of pudding mix and corn starch until it thickens up. The more you stir and work it, the better the consistency gets. The consistency of this cherry slime mixture comes up somewhere between playdough and slime.

*Add a little oil to loosen up the texture if you like.

Finish off by topping the slime with gummy cherries. You can place them on top the slime, work them in, it is up to you!

THE TEXTURE OF EDIBLE SLIME

The unique texture is what makes borax-free slime or edible slime so much fun for kids. Each will have their own AMAZING sensory experience using sight, smell, sound, touch, and even taste!

Everyone has a different slime consistency preference, so we encourage you to play around with the measurements to find your favorite texture. We include suggestions too!

EDIBLE SLIME TIPS

  • Cooking oil can help to loosen the slime so that it’s more fluid or stretchy. It can also help if the slime seems a bit dry. Add just a few drops at a time!
  • Edible slime tends can be messy to make. So be prepared for clean up.
  • The slime won’t last as long as regular slime. Keep in a sealed container overnight and you may get another day of play.
  • Each edible slime will be unique! Yes, each slime has its own texture.
  • A borax-free slime needs to be kneaded! These types of slimes are very hands-on and do well with the warmth from your hands.
  • The slime may feel like soft play dough. It won’t ooze everywhere but they will spread and squish but are not moldable usually.
