Safe & Natural DIY Slime (you could eat)
This DIY Slime is all Natural and safe you could eat it – but I wouldn’t recommend, Blegh.
Whilst most store-bought slimes claim to be free from toxins, many contain fragrance, which can be made up of any number of chemicals. This article covers in more depth the safety concerns with both store-bought and homemade slime.
I did many searches trying to find a DIY slime recipe I could make for the kids that didn’t contain toxins. I tried all variations of No Borax slime, no glue free, toxin free slime and safe slime and although there are heaps of recipes, there were very few that contained safe ingredients. From all my scrolling I concluded that psyllium slime was the way to go.
Now I must disclose this psyllium slime is more like flubber than an actual slime that you can stretch and squish. But the little kids still had a blast with it. The older kids might feel a bit ripped off though. Whilst warm the slime it more stretchy and slime-like, but as it cools it firms up
