We’re not saying slime gets old and boring; after all, you or your kids could play with it for hours. It’s just that, for the sheer novelty of it, your slime could do with a good makeover. What’s interesting about a slime makeover is that it isn’t all about the looks—how it feels in your hands and its texture is what sticks out most to you.
Perhaps this is your first slime makeover. If so, don’t worry—sit back and we’ll give you our professional recommendations. Let’s start with the four best things to add to slime and see if that spurs on more slime fun.
First, foam beads offer a pillowing soft feel. Ranging widely in size—foam beads for slime from Dope Slimes can be small, large, or jumbo—there are all kinds of options on the table. Foam crunch-ifies slime, giving it a different sound as you squeeze and poke. Add in however many you want and enjoy how it changes up the slime you know and love.
Somewhat similar to foam beads, clear and colorful fishbowl beads also add some crunch. The difference here is they’re much more solid than foam, so they give it some oomph. As you stretch, squeeze, turn, and repeat, you’ll notice the beads have a lot of click to them, too. While you probably didn’t even think about wanting that, it’s a surprisingly addicting sound.
Moving on, even though they’re light and small, fimo slices are a heavyweight contender amongst potential slime add-ins. The idea behind these tiny clay-based things is they look like flat slices of something solid, such as a banana or strawberry. Suspending them in your slime looks super interesting—for fun, try mixing different fruits to create your own slime smoothie. It’s ok if your smoothie also happens to have stars in it—we won’t tell!
Our final best thing to add to slime is a staple—glitter. It’s our smallest add-in, and (if this is what you’re hunting for) it doesn’t mess with the texture like others do. In our opinion, glitter is an ideal partner for clear slime so you and your kids can see all the beautiful colors clearly.
Though that’s all for now, we also offer Bingsu beads, charms, foam chunks, pom poms, and more for your sliming pleasure.
