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.

This happens to be one of the cheapest ways to make your slime. You can make a batch of slime then once you have it already prepared, you can add some rock salt in it to make it crunchy. You can either use the naturally occurring rock salt or you could go for the colored ones. Colored rock salt creates beautiful, highly reflective slimes that you will have fun squishing. It makes for an amazing sensory activity and works as a perfect seasonal science.
Cabochons are the charms of slime mixins. They are flat beads that you can mix in slime. They are made from resins, plastic or polymer clay that are usually painted which means the resulting slime is not just crunchy, it’s colorful too. Many of the cabochons, like you see above, are shaped in mini desserts that could include cupcakes, donuts, hamburgers, strawberries and cakes but you can even find tiny coffee mugs, butterflies or leaves. You can stick them into your slime when you finish mixing the ingredients together.
