Slime Name Recognition Activity

slime activity for preschoolers

This is such a fun, simple, hands on name recognition activity!

Make your favorite slime recipe. We like the recipe above, 2 ingredient WOW Slime, Contact Solution Slime, or Monsters Inc Slime Recipe.

You will need letter beads with the letters of your child’s/student’s name and the  I’ve Been Slimed Printable (free download below), and a marker.


Once you’ve made your slime and gathered all your supplies, you are ready to start!


Give your child/students the printable and the slime from the bag. Tell them that the slime is going to be a little cold and sticky. Next write their name on the printable and go over each letter in their name with them. Then tell them you have hidden beads in their slime and it’s going to be their job to find the beads. They have to stretch and pull the slime to find them. The beads are going to have letters on them and the letters make up their name. Once they find the letter beads they will spell out their name on the bottom of the printable. Then just let them play!
