Slime Time!!!

My girls love to play with slime.  We used to get these teeny tiny plastic eggs full with the gooey stuff which they loved and more recently they have been trying to make their own. My fridge has been filled with little pots of this and that with and without glitter and to be honest it was getting a bit much.  Then I started seeing mention on twitter about a company called Zimpli Kids who make a range of coloured slime that you can make yourself using their handy packs.  They have different sized packs depending on how brave you are feeling so you can make some in a bowl or sink and there are others large enough to use in a bath.  Of course once my children heard about this they insisted on trying it.

We got two different packs one called Slime Play, the other Slime Baff.  These come in a mix of colours and are scented.  The products are made in the UK, 100% safe and degradable, environmentally friendly, non irritant and stain free.

Slime Play

The Slime Play was the smaller of the two packs and we decided to make this in a bowl.  We didn’t use the whole sachet.  It was easy enough to use and we found by combining it with water giving it a good mix, setting it aside for a bit then giving it another mix we got great results.

The more you mix it the thicker it gets!!



Doesn’t it look fun!!!!

Take a look at our video to see for yourself.


We covered this with cling film when the girls had finished playing and kept it for a few more days to extend the fun.  When we had finished with the Slime Play, water was added and it was poured down the toilet and flushed away.

Slime Baff

The Slime Baff was also great fun.  We followed the same technique to prepare the slime as before and purposely didn’t use too much water so we could add warm water when the children were ready to get in.

Check out the Slime Baff in our video here:


The girls had an amazing time playing with the slime.  When it was time to finish up we simply added more water to it and the Slime Baff went down the plug hole and as it had thinned out with the addition of the water it drained away easily.  The bath was simply wiped down as always then cleaned with a disinfectant and was ready for the next use.

I was impressed at how easy the slime was to use and the kids thought it was great fun.  The are looking forward to their next Slime Baff.

Do you feel brave enough to get into a bath with slime?
