One day my son came home from daycare with DIY Slime. He could not wait to show it off after he greeted me with a kiss and hug. It was in a yellow container and sparkled with glitter.

We decided to take the slime out the container to play with it. It was sticky, slimly, ooey, gooey, and fun to play with. We smashed and constructed it in to various shapes.

About 30 minutes before dinner, we decided to make up an activity called the Slime Time Game. The game is simple and will encourage your child to think on their feet while being creative. This is a great indoor activity for rainy and cold days. Below I will explain how to play.

Let’s get started!

Materials Needed:

How to Play:

  • Give your child the slime.
  • Let them play with it for a while to get used to shaping and forming it.
  • I encourage you to play with the slime as well.
  • Tell your child they have a certain amount of time to make a letter, number, shape, or image.
  • During the first round of the game, I told my son he had 45 seconds to make the letter A.
My son made the letter A in 25 seconds.


  • Have your child give you the slime.
  • Have them tell you to make something in a certain amount of time.
  • My son asked me to make the number 89 in 40 seconds.
I made the number 89 in 30 seconds. This slime was very sticky.

Watch this video of my son making the letter H in 30 seconds.

We had a lot of fun with this activity. It kept us busy for about 35 minutes! It is great for letter, shape, and number recognition.

Have fun with this!

  1. I used to despise slime. But, I had a teenager who went thru the whole slime frenzy. Then my younger kids wanted to get involved & it became a stuck in the carpet mess. We’ve bought some of those slime home kits and they are awful!!! That’s when we started playing with different recipes online and found a few that aren’t too sticky and actually super cool to look at it and play with. It’s definitely not something young kids should do alone, but with the supervision of an adult Slime can be very effective with kids who have sensory issues, ADHD or ADD. Thanks for sharing. Honestly, glad you guys didn’t have the same experience with those DIY kits as we did!

    1. Yes this activity should be done with adult supervision. We love making our own slime! The Internet is full of cool recipes. Thank you for your comment, Ladylyrik303!

  2. What a fun idea! Kids love slime so much. Why not make an educational game of it? Thanks for sharing the idea. It would be a great Halloween party game as well, I think.

  3. What an awesome way to bring learning and games together. My kids love making their own slime so this is a great way to add some education into one of their favorite activities. Thanks for sharing!
