Today we decided to use our slime with a fun construction activity for kids that was a hit with all my kids from toddler, preschool, pre k, kindergarten, first grade, and more!
We started by whipping up our favorite 2-ingredient WOW Slime using 2 bottles of this black glitter glue and Sta-Flo. The consistency of this easy slime recipe is simply amazing and really looks like black asphalt about to be laid. It is perfect for scooping up, oozing out of trucks, and smoothing to make a road.
