DIY Watermelon Slime Recipe for Kids

Slime is such a fun substance to play with! 


No wonder kids are all about making slime


I can’t tell you how many times my oldest has asked me to make slime for her when she was 4 years old. 


She eventually learned how to make it on her own and I’m not even kidding, she makes it all of the time. 


It’s that easy! 


Related: This is the slime she makes all of the time and it is an easy slime recipe without borax! 


This time around, I made a slime with water because I heard water helps with a bit more elasticity. 


So, we made it and I must say it’s a very nice elastic slime recipe. 🙂 


I’ll be sharing below all we used to make it and how we tailored it for summer time!

This is similar to our 3 ingredient slime recipe but it includes water, food coloring and a bit of uncooked black beans to make for a – watermelon theme for preschoolers!
