Colorful Easter Egg slime is a great sensory craft for little fingers. Learn how easy it is to make, plus ten more fun and easy Easter crafts for preschoolers.
Crafts that require measuring and mixing are a great way to encourage your kids to enjoy both science, and cooking. Just make sure they know which crafts aren’t edible!
Corban loved getting to squeeze the food coloring himself, and really focused on only getting a tiny bit.
Each cup starts out with some white school glue (which I’ve learned to just start buying by the gallon) and food coloring, which we mix in with popsicle sticks.
The cups we’re using were sent to us by Cheeky, which makes super fun disposable dishes for a good cause. Every purchase of their products leads to a meal donated to help fight hunger. We loved the cheerful samples they sent us so much, I just had to buy more! You can get some of your own at Target. (They’re not paying us to share them with you, I just really like them!)
The next step is to dissolve the Borax in some warm water. Make sure it’s warm or your Borax won’t dissolve and you’ll get sad grainy slime. Trust us on this one. If you want to know more about our Borax Slime Recipe, make sure to read our article on it.
You can find Borax really cheap at Wal-mart. It’s great for all sorts of things including homemade laundry detergent, crafts and science experiments, stain removal, and even killing fleas! Not that we’ve ever had fleas in our home, twice. Nope, not here. If you are hesitant to use Borax for creating slime, you might find our Borax free slime recipe quite interesting!
Once you’ve got your various colors, you can mix them together to make beautiful colorful Easter Egg slime. When your little one is done playing with the slime, you can keep it sealed in an airtight plastic bag for several weeks. Corban plays with his every day. It’s now a solid grayish purple color, but he loves it just as much as the day he made it! Be sure to check out our St Patrick’s day themed sensory slime recipe and our toddler safe goop recipe as well. Both are indisputable successes for toddlers!
