Slime is a non-Newtonian fluid, which acts like a solid, but also like a liquid. When the boric acid mixes with the PVA, the molecules combine into flexible polymer chains, causing them to stick together and form what we know as Slime. Our slimes are made of a combination of glue, borax and add-ins like shaving cream, mica, soap dye, glitter, clay, beads, scent and more to make for a unique and playful experience.
Isn't Slime messy?
Yes, but I think the benefits of Slime far outweigh the messiness. Slime is a great sensory activity for people, young and old, with neurodivergent or neurotypical brains! It promotes STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education and is a fun hands-on cognitive project! Playing with Slime can help to build hand strength and promote pre-writing/drawing skills by forming muscle pathways. Slime can help distract the brain from episodes of anxiety and relieves stress. So yes, as messy as it may be, Slime is a great tool to help with Self-Care!
