- Clear slime is fun because you can find little items to mix in and you can see them well!
This time to make this easy baking soda slime recipe my daughter used rainbow colored beads which adds a fun texture, and a pop of color too.
You could really add anything though….that’s what makes this easy slime recipe so fun!
I don’t know, but I think the fascination with slime is in making it themselves. She’s bought a few batches at the store with money she’s earned but doesn’t like it nearly as much as the ones she’s made herself.
Watching it transform from sticky glue, to a thicker mixture, to something she can pick up and knead is a big part of the fun and this kid safe recipe makes it easy for me to say “yes, go ahead and make some”.
Of course with children and any experiments you should always be present just in case, please see my safety disclaimer before starting.

Seriously….my kids actually fight over who gets to mop! 😉 We have several different types of flooring in our house, but in the kitchen is tile. O-Cedar’s EasyWringTM Spin Mop & Bucket System works on all flooring, even hardwood!
It also eliminates the need to bend down to wring water out of it with it’s hands-free wringer (which helps me and my back), and requires little effort to use…perfect for all of us.
Each week it needs to be done just to keep the house clean, but when extra messes arise the mop is easy accessible for them to use.
