DIY Slime Recipe + Party Favor Printables

How to make slime from scratch + free printable labels

Want to make your kid's next birthday party a hit? Give slime away as the party favor! Slime is so trendy right now. The kids will go home happy and you won't have to buy all of that cheap plastic stuff that breaks the first time you play with it.

The best part? It's really easy to make and your kids will have a blast doing it. There is something magical and relaxing as you stretch and pull the slime in your hands. In a way, it's like a fidget spinner, without the spinning. It's a great way to do something with your hands while you're watching TV or hanging out with your friends.

  • Food coloring
  • Glitter or sequins (optional)
  • Small plastic containers with lids (I bought mine at the dollar store)

My son Kai has been begging to make slime for months so finally, he has gotten his chance. Normally, he steers clear of my different DIY posts but this time, he was in on the action and couldn’t get enough.

I hope your kids enjoy making this fun party favor and handing it out at their next party!
