Slime will always be a huge hit with kids. There’s something about being a little scientist and mixing together just the right ingredients and then adding in fun additions like foam balls, glitter, beads, and googly eyes that get their creative juices flowing. Some kids even love to make slime so much they end up making huge batches and selling it!
This is a great and easy way to put together a DIY slime gift box for any age. It’s cheaper than other slime kits and lets you personalize a bit more based on what the child loves to add to their slime.
I’ve even included a printable gift tag to really help your gift stand out under their tree! You can view and print that at the end of the post, just click the image of it to load the PDF and print.
