Slime at TopKids Mount

This week at TopKids Mount in the TopKids room, we have been experimenting with Non Toxic Slime.  This is made up by mixing 1/4 Cup of Chia Seeds,  one bag of Cornflour, and water.  The Chia Seeds swell and become sticky, and help to “glue” the slime together.  The cornflour adds to the consistency.  We added a small drop of food colouring, but you could also use spices such as turmeric for a more natural colour.  This slime is also gluten free, so for children with gluten intolerance this is a great way to have a tactile experience without risk of an allergic reaction.  When the mixture dries, it just wipes away with a damp cloth.
