I find slime is quick and easy to make and we love exploring its strange texture together.
How to makeSlime 350g Soap Flakes Food colouring 700ml of warm water.
Add the food clouding to the warm water and gradually beat into the soap flakes. That’s it!
Play Ideas: To start with I spoon a small amount of the slime onto the table and encourage them to explore it with their fingers. A new texture can be overwhelming particularly when you can’t see it, so it may take lots of time and a few attempts before your child feels comfortable.
Once the child is comfortable with the texture you can add more items for them to incorporate in their play such as spoons, pots, small bowls, whisks etc.
