Week 2- Mythical Creatures

Time to let your imagination run wild and get fantastical with mythical creatures. We love a good unicorn, pegasus, and mermaid moment. You will be making your own charms, inspired by mythical creatures, whether it’s from your favorite book, movie, game, or your own invention. Plus, we’ll show you how to whip up cloud slime and how to make perfect drizzles. You’ll decorate your slime with your new homemade charms to build a magical, mythical scene. Yay!

  • Have your activator made and ready to go (a how to video is below in the next section)

Slime of The Week:

This week we will be making Cloud slime decorated with amazing mythical charms! Cloud slime is one of the most nuanced and difficult to make. It has taken professional slimers a lot of time to get it right. This class will show you the art of the cloud and how to make perfect drizzles. It will be hosted by Camp Counselor Sasha of @someotherslime who is also the Director of our Kitchen and Experience. We can't wait to make and drizzle some delicious cloud slime together!

  • 1 Bottle of School Glue
  • SnoWonder Instant Snow packet
  • Activator (mix 1 tsp of Borax powder with 1 cup of hot water until it fully dissolves)
  • 1 Bottle of Scent (your choice!)

Craft of the Week:

This week we will be making custom Charms in honor of Mythical Creatures Week! We will be decorating the magical shrink paper provided and then your homework is to bake them into charms. Our charms will shrink by 50% and become the perfect addition to our Cloud slime! We will be showing our handmade charms next week in show and tell.

Provided Materials:

  • Charm Making Paper

Need to Gather:

  • Colored Pencils
  • Markers


Shrink Paper Decorating/Baking Instructions:

  1. Draw or trace your design on the paper. You can use markers and colored pencils for this
  2. Cut out your design with scissors
  3. Pre-heat your oven (conventional or toaster oven) between 300-350 degrees Fahrenheit. You can text a scrap to see the best temperature
  4. Place your design on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. **Do not bake on bare metal, stoneware, or aluminum foil**
  5. Heat for around 2-3 minutes until the design is flat or the shrinking has stopped
  6. Let cool and enjoy! Save for show and tell for next week


  • Do not bake your charms without parental help or supervision!
  • We ask that you bake the charms after the designated camp time
  • The design will shrink to 50% of its original size
  • You may cover the design with parchment paper or vellum to minimize curling and sticking while baking
  • If curling occurs when shrink paper is baking you can use a spatula or other tool to flatten while it is still hot and pliable

Sounds of Sloomoo: 

We’ll also be playing our theme song and discussing ASMR. Below is a link to both - the ASMR is the same track we have in our space, where you can listen with ear phones while you play with slime. You’re the only people we’ve ever sent this to!!!
