If you don’t know about the slime craze that’s been going on, then it’s time for you to get out from that rock you’ve been living under and fully embrace yourself in the oooey, gooey, glorious fun that is slime.
The Nickelodeon Slime, from Cra-Z-Art, is all I need to relive my ’90s childhood days. Back then, there was no greater joy than watching my favorite Nick celebs grace the network’s best game shows—Double Dare, You Can’t Do That, and Figure It Out, just to name a few—and waiting for the ceiling to open up and ooze out the iconic green slime.
Until recently, it was nearly impossible to experience the channel’s beloved slime, unless you were able to talk your parents into booking an epic trip to Nickelodeon Studios—but I digress. With Cra-Z-Art’s line of kits that finally lets kids create their own version of the network’s green goo, all bets are off the table.
The range of slime kits include Neon & Glow, Super Slimy, and Scented, letting kids choose between different textures, colors, and effects. Additionally, the kits include everything needed to concoct the creation, including the ingredients, as well as mixers and bowls.
Following the instructions, kids will be able to make their own slime in a few easy steps. First, kids mix the glue and water into the mixing bowl. After that, they choose which paint they want to use and mix it into the bowl. Each kit comes with three colors to choose from.
Now, kids add some of the slime-making powder and warm water into the second mixing bowl. Once the powder completely dissolves, the contents from that bowl can be mixed with the first bowl. After slowly mixing the solution, kids will start to see slime form. To get the best results, the slime should be mixed for about 10 minutes. The more the slime is mixed, the thicker the end result.
As a result of the potential hazards involved with homemade slime using Borox, Cra-Z-Art reformulated its ingredients with a safe activator that does not include the chemical. Unlike most DIY slime, parents can rest assured knowing that their kids will be out of danger when they use the kits from Cra-Z-Art.
Each type of slime has its own texture and feel to it, so that kids can create different combinations and compare the end results. Unlike many other slime kits, the Nickelodeon Slime is just as oooey and gooey as you would hope for, but it doesn’t leave your hands filling sticky.
The kits are super affordable, fun, and easy, and make it a perfect activity for rainy summer days, or when kids need a break from the heat.
