If you have a school aged kid in your life, chances are – you’re in the midst of this weird trend…slime making. However, a lot of the ingredients used in these slimes can be toxic and damaging to little hands (ask a Mama who knows…since her son got rashes all over his hands…eep!). The solution to this is simple, make it safe and edible! Kids play with their food regardless, so might as well make an activity out of it.

I’ll also have you know that my 3 expert slime-makers have come back with the report: “this is actually really great slime”. So there you go. Approved. By the experts themselves!

Servings: 3

Ingredients

  • 1 bag mini marshmallows
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, plus additional for mixing
  • 1/2 cup corn starch, plus additional for mixing
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar, plus additional for mixing
  • Food coloring

Equipment

  • Stovetop Pot
  • Mixing Bowl

Method

  • At a medium heat, add your marshmallows and coconut oil to a large pot and mix continuously until melted (you can do a microwaved version of this as well).
  • Once melted, pour your marshmallow melt into a mixing bowl and add in corn starch and icing sugar.
  • Mix with your hands. Note: this will get STICKY! To help with this, coat them in coconut oil.
  • Transfer the mixture onto a cornstarch coated surface, and continue to knead and mix until the *right* slime consistency is reached. It should be stretchable and not sticky. Keep adding corn starch, icing sugar and coconut oil until you feel happy with your texture.
  • Divide the slime into three, and do drops of food coloring on each. Knead again to mix the colors.
  • It's finished! Roll, stretch & play with your slime (and it's ok to take a bite, too!).
