Week 2- Broadway!

By popular demand, this week we will be going to Broadway! The slime: A dual colored Butter slime. Butter slimes are satisfying, stretchy, and spread as smoothly as butter. Everyone will top their slimes with brand new homemade charms that reflect the marquee from their favorite - or made up - show!

  • Try to get on the Zoom 5 minutes early
  • Raise your hand for questions (if it’s dire when we teach) but we prefer to have write us the chat box so we don’t lose too much time
  • Have your activators made and ready to go (a how to video is below in the next section)

Slime of The Week:

Butter slime is one our favorite textures. It’s holdable, playable, stretchy, and soothing. Adults tend to appreciate it as it’s not as sticky as other types of slime and it’s perfect for improving manual dexterity. We will be making a dual colored Butter swirl slime to step things up a notch!

Craft of the Week:

For our craft this week we will be making our own charms to decorate our slime with. To top off our Broadway theme you can make a marquee from your favorite real - or made up - show! You will need to throw them in the oven after class to make them shrink (with adult supervision)!

Provided Materials:

  • 1 Piece of Shrink Film
  • Sharpie

Need to Gather:

  • Scissors
  • Colored markers (permanent preferred)
  • Parchment paper

Shrink Charm Instructions:

  1. Draw and/or trace your design on to the piece of shrink film
    • All designs will shrink by 50%
    • Colors will get darker after shrinking the charm
  2. Cut out your design using scissors
  3. Pre-heat your oven between 300-350 degrees Farenheit.
  4. Place your charms on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place another piece of parchment paper on top to prevent edges curling
  5. Bake the charms for 2-3 minutes until the shrinking has stopped
    • If the edges have curled use a spatula to flatten while still 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!!!
