Edible Slime

on March 24, 2012

Time to get messy!!  Edible slime is a yummy, sticky, sweet substance your kids will love to play with.  It only takes a few ingredients and a few minutes to create, but will give your kids an hour of entertainment.  All you need are:

14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk

2 Tbl cornstarch

Few drops of food coloring of your choice

In a sauce pan place your sweetened condensed milk and turn it to low.  Once it has been heated through sprinkle the cornstarch on top and carefully mix it in until the mixture has thickened a bit.  Add your food coloring (we made pink) and stir it together.  Pour it into a cookie sheet or pie plate and allow it to cool completely before playing.  For clean up have a warm, soapy bucket of water nearby to dip dirty hands into and the mixture comes right off.  Very cool, enjoy!
