We love slime at our house. And the amazing thing to me is that my kids (all ages) KEEP on loving it. Part of the reason for that is because there are so many different types of slime you can make. The possibilities are endless! Parents love it because kids are using science to make something fun and kids love it because it is ooey-gooey, stretchy and awesome!

I already have a Slime Kit on my website, but as our slime obsession has grown here I wanted to add some ingredients and recipes for even more fun slime gifts.

I made this into three different gifts. A beginner slime kit, an intermediate slime kit and an advanced slime kit that would make a perfect family gift for Christmas this year!

As always, the recipes and labels are free to print from my Gift Printables Library. All you need to do is enter your email below.

Without further ado, here is what you need for each gift.

Clear Glue

Food Coloring

Measuring cups and spoons

Borax (This is much cheaper in the laundry section at your grocery store)

Container for Borax (I got mine from the dollar store)

Who this gift is for

These kits would be a great gift from kids ages 4 all the way to teenagers! My 13-year-old regularly makes new slime concoctions. The different levels means they are great gifts even for kids who are already making slime. The advanced slime kit would make an amazing family gift…so if you have a fun family to buy for who loves to play together…this is a great option!

Can you think of someone who would love a slime kit? The color changing slime is so much fun, but don’t take our word for it…try it yourself!

I hope you will use these and want to hear how they go!

Happy Gifting!

    This is the best gift idea I have seen in a long time! Very clever! My kids are crazy about slime and we are forever buying little containers of “flarp” from Wal-Mart. I will be making the advanced slime kit for one of our family gifts. The kids will love it!

      I’m so glad Summer! These kits are much cheaper than buying the pre-made stuff. 🙂 I’d love to hear what your kids think after you give them the big kit! Thank you!!

      Thanks Bailey! Getting the supplies is the big pain, right? It’s not so bad when you have everything all together!

    So cool! We tried to make slime, but we just made a mess. Any tips?

      Emy, what is your slime like? Too sticky: add more activator (Borax + water or contact solution) Not Stretchy: add a few squirts of hand lotion. If you haven’t tried the baking soda recipe that one is pretty fool proof! I hope this helps! 🙂
