This past weekend (5/7/16) my kids and I got to participate in something super fun and for a good cause. I’m sure that you already have an idea of what we did but if you don’t we did a Slime Bucket Challenge. Being that Brian was at work, it was just the kids and I so I wasn’t able to get photos of the kids covered head to toe in slime. I contemplated having my phone and camera on me but then I figured out quickly that the equation of two child plus slime plus expensive electronics does not mix. However I was able to get a couple shots before the slime fest was fully underway; I was like the flash when it came to taking the photos. Anyways back to this Slime Bucket Challenge, here is what you should know…
2. When your Slime Bucket Challenge Kit arrives, follow the instructions in the pack to magically change water into gooey Slime. Simply sprinkle the Slime powder over your water, stir with your hand, and wait a few minutes for the Slime to develop! The longer you leave the Slime, the thicker it becomes – if you’re patient enough, we recommend waiting 10 minutes for the gooiest Slime!
3. Slime yourself! When you think the Slime is thick and gunky enough, get ready to get SLIMED! Get your camera ready, start the recording, nominate your friends, family or even a celebrity, and then Slime yourself… or get someone else to Slime you!
4. Share your video and pictures on social media. Share your videos and nominate your friends through your social media. By sharing your videos and nominating others, you’re helping us spread the word about The Slime Bucket Challenge and raise as much money as possible for Action For Children.
REMEMBER – Slime is slippy so please take care! Check the t&cs before taking part in the challenge!We already have an array of famous faces on board who have agreed to take the challenge, so why don’t you join them!
The directions for mixing (making) the slime were really easy, I highly recommended having a pretty decent sized bowl or bucket when making the slime. In the directions it stated to use warm water well I wasn’t paying attention and ours got really hot; I only realized it when I stuck my hand in the bucket to mix the slime. It was an easy fix, I just added a good amount of ice cubes and it didn’t seem to hinder the mixture at all. After having it completely mixed we waited about a half hour for it to get good and thick; talk about torture for the kids (haha). After it was ready I transferred the slime to two different bowls, one for each kid because to them it’s the end of the world if they have to share with each other.
Both kids were really eager about touching it and playing with the slime, Lucas was all about it for about 10 minutes then was like “I’m going over here with my trains” while Lilly really got into inspection mode. Not going to lie she had her face super close to it and I had to fight the urge to just push her face in it, I know I would find it hilarious but I also knew that she wouldn’t. After some time apart from his slime, Lucas came back with trains and just had a ball playing it in. I understand that the Slime Bucket Challenge is to dump it on your head, someone else’s head etc but the Mueller’s do things a little different. After all it’s all about the good cause that this challenge is about, so however you want to use your slime I say go for it!
One last thing, we did this whole activity outside and that means dumping it out to when the kids were done playing. Even on our driveway the slime was slippery, I slipped once or twice in my sandals so please be careful when completing this challenge. Also stay posted to the blog because I have two more reviews for Zimpli Kids that you don’t want to miss.
