Inside: A huge collection of edible slime recipes for kids.
We love slime!! But when you have toddlers and preschoolers, safety is a priority. That’s why we created these edible slime recipes that you can make with simple ingredients found in the kitchen! Taste safe and worry free!
Why Edible Slime?
If you’ve seen the slime recipes circulating on social media, then you’ve likely noticed that many of them contain harsh ingredients like borax. These can be irritating to sensitive hands, and they’re not the best idea for toddlers or young kids that still like to taste-test everything they play with.
As a mom of young kids, I decided to create SAFE edible slime for my girls to enjoy. Our first and most popular recipe (see below) was such a hit that we decided to try other ingredients too!
Slime is a wonderful sensory activity and very soothing for kids (and grown-ups too!) Our edible slime recipes are all simple (most are 2-3 ingredients) and made with safe, food-based ingredients that are easy to find. In fact, you might already have many of the items we used in your own kitchen.
Read on for all of our favorite edible slime recipes! This list will be updated as we come up with exciting new creations…so stay tuned!
