Slime making. It’s one of those activities that kids are desperate to do. Yet their parents are desperate to avoid. It can be messy. Very, very messy. It takes time. It requires lots of different ingredients. You have no idea how safe it is. And it gets EVERYWHERE. So Slime DIY claim to solve those problems so I was keen to put it to the test.
The main idea behind So Slime DIY is that it’s slime making without the mess and without the faff factor. We were sent the Slime Shakers 3 pack to review. In each pot you get two sealed packets. One of powder and one of glitter. Also included is a surprise figurine for each pot.
How to make the slime
The instructions are simple. All you have to do is put the slime powder and the glitter (or confetti) into the pot and then fill it up to the line with water. Pop the lid on and shake for about 30 seconds. Then take the lid off and wait for five minutes before you try and remove the slime from the pot.
When we did this we found that we needed to shake for a bit more than 30 seconds and in one case stir it with a spoon to make sure everything was mixed properly, but this may have been down to Master C’s shaking “style” more than anything else.
Simple and mess free slime
The thing that I really liked about So Slime DIY is that it really is so simple compared to all the slime making recipes that you find on the internet. You don’t need to go shopping for ingredients or worry about what chemical reactions might be taking place. So Slime DIY complies with all European safety standards making it far safer than anything you can do at home.
As you mix the slime by shaking it in a lidded pot it’s a lot less messy than any other recipe we’ve tried. Kids always manage to slosh things out of bowls no matter how careful you tell them to be. You do need to make sure the lids click on properly, but if you do then there should be no mess at all in the slime making process.
