Activity For Kids:

Easy taste safe psyllium husk slime

This was my first attempt at making slime and my preschooler son enjoyed helping.

I was glad that it used ingredients that I usually have in the house and that are not unsafe (like glue or borax I saw in other recipes).

This activity is great to teach your kids:

Colour recognition activities helps children get to know the different colors and color blending and matching.

Sensory play is play that involves all the senses - taste, sound, sight, touch and smell. Sensory play is very beneficial to children. Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which lead to the child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks. Sensory play is also very relaxing and rejuvenating to children.

Step 1

Make as many batches of slime as you want.

Add one tablespoon of psyllium husk to one cup of water and add food coloring. Stir and microwave for two minutes. Stir again and microwave for one more minute. Let cool.

Step 2

Add slime to sensory bin and invite kids to play

This is a lovely recipe for slime. I told my kids to keep the slime in the sensory bin and not let it come on the deck. My son mixed the slime colors and then he stepped into the slime, squishing it between his toes.
