Slime Gift Basket for Kids Including 3 Slime Recipes

Are you looking for a super fun birthday present for kids? This Slime Gift Basket is a great gift for any child or teen who is addicted to making slime.

I pride myself on being pretty good at RSVPing to events and birthday parties right away. Buying the gift, however, is something I usually procrastinate about. This past week my daughter was invited to the birthday party for a 10-year-old and I waited for wayyy too late to buy the present. I ended up running out that morning at 9:00 am to pick up a gift. The party was at 10 am…I had 1 hour to pull something good together.

Safety When Making Slime

  • It’s best to have an adult make the slime or oversee the slime mixing.
  • Do not substitute any ingredients.
  • Wear gloves to protect your skin (especially if you are using food coloring)
  • Don’t eat the slime. No bueno.
  • Don’t let your little ones play with slime unsupervised – your rugs and your daughter’s hair will thank you.
  • There are chemicals in this slime, please be careful.

I hope you can give someone the gift of slime with this easy last-minute Slime Gift Basket!
