Patriotic Edible Slime
If you think that you’re excited about introducing this patriotic slime recipe to your child, just think about how they’re going to feel. Be ready for their eyes to grow big as you explain to them the concept of “edible” slime. Everything they’ve ever been taught about slime up to this point is now off the table.
They can put it in their mouth. They can eat the slime. And they’re about to have the most fun and delicious snack, ever! We make this just for sensory play, but I know that almost every time, my kids are going to end up with it in their mouths.
My daughter would make edible marshmallow slime every day if I would let her. It ends up in her stomach every single time, and she’s 6! So while this is great sensory play for toddlers, older kids love it as well.
Red White Blue Slime Ingredients:
- 1/3 cup white chocolate instant pudding mix
- 1 cup of cornstarch
- red and blue food coloring (we like to use natural food coloring if there is a chance the kids might take a bite out of it)
- 1/3 cup of water
- mixing bowl
- mixing spoon
How to make patriotic edible slime
1. Add the white chocolate instant pudding mix (instant only, do nor use stovetop pudding mix) and cornstarch into your bowl. Mix the dry ingredients well.
2. Add water and stir quickly. If you notice any clumping, simply break clumps with a spoon.
3. A crumbly dough will start to form. Use your hands to mix and form the slime.
4. If your slime is too dry or even clumpy, it may need a little more water. Just add a teaspoon of water at a time until you get the slime consistency.
5. If your slimeis too watery, add in equal parts of pudding mix and corn starch until it thickens.
6. Separate the slimeinto 3 portions and place in separate bowls. Add a few drops of blue food coloring to one portion, a few drops of red to the other, and leave the third portion white. Mix each portion well until the color is mixed.
7. You can now combine your 3 different colors. It is best to roll each into a snake shape then twist or braid them together. This will give them the nice swirl coloring!
How do you need to store edible slime?
You’ll want to store in an airtight container when not in use. As opposed to regular slime made with contact solution or other non-edible ingredients, this will only keep for a few days.
