Sharing is caring!

Today on the blog I am sharing How to Make Slime for Kids!  This play dough is made from Gummy bears. I really hope you enjoy this tutorial and that you find it super useful. We love playdough and always have done. It’s something Sylvia enjoys and something I made as a preschool teacher so I think it’s a great opportunity to share here on The Inspiration Edit too.
