Slime Strings Using a Cooling Rack

Slime Strings With Slime a Cooling Rack | Mama Papa Bubba

Oh, how we love slime. Grae and I started making it when she was just over two years old and one of our favourite things has always been to create slime strings using slotted spoons, sand sifters, and colanders {check out Baby G’s slime strings during her first ever slime play session!}  It’s just so neat to watch the slime slowly sink down through the holes and emerge on the other side as perfect, thin cords.

Well today we took our slime strings to a whole new level by pairing our slime with a cooling rack and my gosh – was it ever cool.  Miss G was sitting up at the island playing with some of our freshly made Valentine’s fluffy slime and Sam and I had made a batch of banana muffins earlier in the day, so the cooling rack {CAN} was just sitting there on the counter, and that’s when I remembered previously seeing this slime paired with a wire kitchen shelf for cutting practice.

Besides our fluffy slime and cooling rack {CAN}  I grabbed on of our favourite play trays (we have a stack of these and use them for all kinds of kids’ projects) and a couple of big mason jars.

Then Miss G propped the cooling rack up on top of the jars with the tray below, took a chunk of slime and stretched it out into a fairly thin layer, and placed in on top of the cooling rack.

It looked really neat right from the get-go, but check out this progression:

And what’s even cooler?  The little curls and twists and the slime strings form when the hit the tray.

Just check that out.  Aren’t they neat? These were Miss G’s favourite part and she said they remind her of curly hair – hah!

If you’ve got some slime and a cooling rack on hand, I highly recommend you try this…  My guess is that your kiddos will be adding slime to the top of the rack again and again {just like mine} because it’s SO neat!
