What is it with kids and slime? Since the dawn of time (OK, maybe just the dawn of Nickelodeon), kids have been obsessed with the goopy grossness.
We really shouldn't complain, however, because slime is an excellent way to spark imagination — and it has the magical ability to keep children occupied for hours on end. Instead of getting the store-bought stuff, set up shop in the backyard (or put down a tarp inside), gather a few ingredients, and let the slimy fun commence.
Found at your favorite craft store or the laundry detergent aisle of your grocery store, Borax powder not only helps you make your own Nickelodeon slime for your kids, but offers a fun way to sneak in some science lessons too!
