Marshmallow Slime

You can call it both slime and play dough. It’s not quite slimy, but it isn’t quite play dough either. Regardless of the name, it’s a great science and sensory experience for the toddlers (and you!).

Marshmallow Slime Directions:

Place the marshmallows in a microwave-safe bowl.

Add one tablespoon of coconut oil to the bowl.

Put the bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds.

Remove the bowl from the microwave and mix the ingredients.

Add three to five tablespoons of cornstarch.

The mixture will be quite sticky but will reduce as you add the cornstarch.

Once the cornstarch is mixed in well, form the marshmallow slime into a ball.

Now that your marshmallow playdough is complete, it’s time to play!
