If you are looking for the best easy slime recipes kids love you’ve come to the right place! Because we’ve gathered 50 of the best slime recipes for kids right here. Did you have any idea before this week that schools will let kids take slime into the classroom for tactical sensory input?
I didn’t even realize slime was a huge trend among tweens and teens until I found out that my sister was struggling to find white glue in the huge town where she lives so that her tween could make slime with her friends this weekend!

And with good reason. Slime is an ooey, gooey, sticky, sensory delight that kids have been playing with for ages. The best kids slime recipe can actually help your child focus on his schoolwork or calm down from a tantrum — and it’s fun too!
