It’s become something of an epidemic. Recipes for playdough and slime and ideas for items to mix into that playdough or slime.
Just when I think the goop craze is dying down I see another post roll on through my Pinterest feed promising to work wonders on my child’s motor skills or squish censors or ESP neurons, and either I roll my big old wobbly eyeballs or think it’s another cute idea I’ll never make because Beckett only likes to mix his Star Wars guys into the playdough, and when I attempted to add in some peppermint extract one day, he promptly rejected the stuff.
This is where my brain starts going, “PEEEEEWAHHHHHCHHHHRRRRRZZUMMMM”, and I can’t help but sit down and brainstorm so many horrible ideas for items to mix into your kid’s dough or slime, so without further ado, I present to you my list of:
20 THINGS TO NEVER, EVER MIX INTO YOUR HANDMADE PLAYDOUGH OR SLIME
- Dog fur
- Sad, sad tears
- Grandma’s ashes
- Peanut butter
- Toilet paper rolls
- Eye of Newt
- Corn. Unless the dough is brown then it will look like corny poo and be so funny
- Broken promises to go to the park
I’ll bet you can think of some more, can’t you, evil sorcerer?
