There are two types of slime, Non-Edible Slime, and Edible Slime. You really won’t want to mix these up.
Before everything begins in the book, the Welcome page gives you a strict list of instructions regarding how to use the book. Encouraging users to read all the instructions carefully before starting anything, all the way down to how to handle various ingredients, I believe these warnings cover everything.
Before any of the recipes begin, the Index page includes a list of your Basic Slime Kit. These are all of the essential tools and ingredients you will need for most of the recipes. I found that the ingredients are extremely easy to source and should be found at any local grocery or dollar store.
The fascinating thing about the book is how many different kinds of slime there really are. I had no idea that so many different kinds existed.
Basic Slime, of course, is the first recipe but the recipes go on to include Stretchy Slime, Glitter Slime, Monster Slime, even Unicorn Slime and many more. There are even four different kinds of Edible Slime, and although Edible Slime might not exactly sound appetizing, they actually look kind of cool.
Throughout the book, there are excellent photos of each of the different kinds of slime, and each of the recipes has step-by-step instructions with step-by-step photos to assist along the way.
Each of the recipes includes the time it takes to make them, the difficulty level, and a non-edible warning where applicable. Some also include little tips about different ways of making the slime or the reason why it works the way it does, giving you a little bit of a science lesson.
While only 64 pages long, the book is full of information about slime and cool recipes for slime. It even goes so far as to explain Slime Storage and Clean Up Tips.
This book would be an excellent suggestion for anyone who wants their children to learn about measuring and creating. It’s also great if you’re having any kind of party because the kids would have a ball creating their own kinds of slime.
See the full review and the recipe for Basic Slime at EBORecipes Magazine - Easy-Bake Oven And Other Kid's Recipes And Resources in response to a complimentary copy of the book provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.
I have a few slime books now in my family collection, and while they almost all have similar recipes, I found that this one was well done in terms of how the recipes are presented and the number of recipes. Not too many for it to become overwhelming, but not too few so that you run out of fun before you're ready to call it a day. The little bits of scinece, the photos, and the really easy instructions made it easy for my kids to follow and to also flip through when we weren't actively making slime. So far, the recipes we have tried worked and made just enough slime. As a parent, I also really liked the quick chart of how long it would take, etc. and the warnings like "may stain." If someone is looking for a good beginner slime making book, I'd go with this one.
