20 Items to Just Not Mix Into the Playdough or Slime

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:


  1. Dog fur
  2. Toenails
  3. Dust
  4. Guano
  5. Gum
  6. Potatoes
  7. Lightbulbs
  8. Cigarettes
  9. Wd-40
  10. Bees
  11. Ice
  12. Cornstarch
  13. Sad, sad tears
  14. Grandma’s ashes
  15. Peanut butter
  16. Toilet paper rolls
  17. Eye of Newt
  18. Pillows
  19. Corn. Unless the dough is brown then it will look like corny poo and be so funny
  20. Broken promises to go to the park

I’ll bet you can think of some more, can’t you, evil sorcerer?
