On the onset of summer vacation, I’d made up my mind. I wanted to ensure we make the most of this time doing things we love to do. You see, the little one is in love with DIY craft ideas. He likes to do tear-and-paste, plays with play-dough and one of his favorite kids’ activities is having fun with slime. We started making slime with toothpaste, shampoo and eventually fell in love with the idea of making it with glue.
I read somewhere that the slime business is booming. The demand for homemade, pure, and toxin-free slime made available without having to spend any money is a dream come true for a mom like me whose little one wants a new pack of slime every other day. So, I did some research and bought a few bottles of Fevicol MR to make colorful, glittery, stretchy, gooey, slime at home.
To make slime has been very therapeutic for me:
So, if like me- your kids have asked you recently to stock up on huge quantities of slime, then here is the frugal way of making it at home without having to spend much time or money on the process. Besides, let me let you in on a secret. Making slime is like de-stressing yourself.
How does slime help with anxiety?
Slime works like a stress toy. It is a simple and effective gadget that can help you to relax while playing with it. According to research, the core function of slime is to take one’s mind off our stressors and it calms our nerves. You can comfortably hold them in the palm of your hand and then squeeze them repeatedly. I like squishing things. Slime can actually reduce anxiety because it is a sensory experience that calms me down. So, if you ask me, making slime is one of the best things I have done to beat my stress.
