So Slime DIY slime shakers allow children aged 6 and over to combine colours, confetti, glitter and surprise figurines for the coolest slime around. Each kit includes everything that is required and all kids need to do is simply add water!
Children love slime and it’s become a firm favourite for home and school arts and crafts projects as kids enjoy the stretchy texture. According to art therapist Nadia Jenefsky, as people are being exposed to more screen time from earlier ages, they crave different sensations. Screens provide only one type of sensory input, which is the smooth rubbing of a finger on a touchscreen or keyboard.
Jenefsky explains that children in general are experiencing less sensory and tactile input which they would traditionally get from playing outdoor games like picking up sticks or making patty cakes out of mud. Slime has somehow filled the place of those activities, which we are less inclined to do, because of various reasons prohibiting us from going out into nature as much as we’d like.
Chiquita Patrizi of Prima Toys has also noted the rise in the demand for toys related to slime. “Slime is fun, it is tactile and provides the opportunity to interact with something that can be manipulated and changed into different things. So Slime DIY slime shakers are about mixing ingredients and experimenting with colours and as a toy product it is very satisfying to play with,” explains Patrizi.
Each Slime Shaker pack contains a figurine as an added surprise!
