Everyone knows what food coloring does to food – so you can easily imagine what it would do to slime. Food color makes an easy addition to slime, a couple drops and some mixing and you’re done. You can play with the amount of food coloring added in order to achieve a lighter or darker effect. The downside of food coloring is that there are limited colors available and the resulting color of your slime may not be unique.

Making slime is a cheap and fun activity that continues to spark curiosity and engross teens and kids alike.

Poly pellets fill for slushie, crunchy slime or–as slimers call it–“fishbowl slime” is a popular ingredient for slime. The clear and transparent beads makes slime highly reflective and shiny. Poly pellets are weighted beads that are commonly used for stuffing bean bags or stuffed animals. The smooth edges and oval contour have a pleasant massaging sensation when you run fishbowl slime through your fingers. Since it is weighted, it can also provide some structure to the slime so that your creation can somewhat maintain a desired shape. While they are a bit bulky, poly pellets are easier to integrate into slime than round glass beads.
