Making slime is one of those activities that kids under 10 just seem to love. This one is great for kids under 5, because there's no doubt they'll want to plop their sticky fingers straight into their mouths. So why not have a gooey slime that tastes alright too.
Over 5s will like making the slime because it involves a bit of cooking, but this slime isn't as gooey and stretchy as others, so older kids might not find it as fun.
Time: 1 hour
Age: Under 5s & 5-10s
395g Can Condensed Milk
1 Tbsp Corn Flour
Green Food Colouring & Flavouring
Place the condensed milk and cornflour in a saucepan, and cook over a low heat.
Cook until mixture starts to thicken.
Remove from heat and add food colouring and flavour. I used a pandan flavouring which was already coloured green, but you can also use green food colouring and vanilla flavour.
Put slime in a bowl, and refrigerate until cool.
Get out the slime, let kids dig their hands in, and have fun. Slime is a fun way to get a bit messy and lets under 5s play with different textures. This edible slime definitely isn't healthy, but your kids won't be putting toxic nasties in their mouth either.
