TASTE-SAFE PUDDING SLIME RECIPE FOR KIDS

Edible pudding slime recipe is taste-safe, borax-free, and non-toxic for kids.

BORAX FREE SLIME

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

HOW TO MAKE PUDDING SLIME

Let’s get right to making edible slime with 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 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! Additionally, these slimes contain a huge amount of cornstarch or sugar.

YOU WILL NEED:

The consistency of this pudding slime mixture comes up somewhere between a play dough and a slime. Add a little oil to loosen up the texture if you like.

THE TEXTURE AND CONSISTENCY OF PUDDING SLIME

These unique textures are what makes borax-free slime or edible slime so much fun for kids. Each has 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 textures. We will include suggestions too!

EDIBLE SLIME HINTS

  • 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.
