Slime is huge right now, as I’m sure you are aware. I’m totally capitalizing on it’s popularity and have created a new go-to present for the elementary and middle school set: a DIY Slime Kit! It is easy to put together, can be customized in many ways and kids love it!
Of course there are ready made slime kits popping up all over the place, but I find them to be too pricey for few ingredients that can’t be easily replaced. I much prefer spending $20 on this kit that can make multiple different slimes!
So what do I put in my DIY Slime Kit? Lets take a closer look!
DIY Slime Kit Supplies
Small locking Plastic Tote (big enough to hold the rest of the supplies)
Selection of School Glues – white, clear and glitter
Baubles for creating unique slimes (think glitter, beads or foam)
Small Ziploc Containers – for storing the slime that is made
Small container of Borax (I bought a large box and fill one of the mini Ziploc containers)
Pack all of the supplies into the container, include a couple of slime recipes and you’re good to go!
I’ve shared a few of my favorites at the bottom of this post.
I also like to personalize the plastic tote by using the Cricut Maker, vinyl and transfer tape to add “Slime Kit” to the outside. Do you have a Cricut cutting machine that uses Cricut Design Space to cut? Use my “Slime Kit” Design Space file to cut your own!
Do you know a child that would love to receive this gift?
