Stretch, squeeze, pull it, and smash the Easter slime! If you want to make some Easter slime and your toddlers tend to put everything in their mouths, then the Peeps Easter slime recipe is your solution.
Even if Peeps are too sweet for you, your kids may enjoy playing with the slime…and eating it.
- 5 Peeps
- 3 Tablespoons of cornstarch
- Vegetable Oil
- Microwave safe bowl
What Mystery Are We Solving?
To make edible slime, you can’t use the traditional chemicals for slime experiments. How do you turn Peeps into slime?
When heating the Peeps marshmallows in the microwave, it gets very hot. It’s recommended that adults remove the bowl to avoid unnecessary burns. It is also suggested that while the Peeps are too hot to handle with bare hands, adults should assist kids in adding the initial cornstarch.
You can make Peeps Easter slime in the various colors of Peeps candy.
- Break apart the Peeps and place them into a bowl with the oil.
- Add the Peeps candy to a microwave bowl.
- Microwave the bowl with Peeps for 30 seconds. Make sure you don’t microwave it too long.
- An adult should remove the bowl from the microwave and start the process until the content has cooled down a bit.
- Add 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch at a time.
- Mix it well with softened Peeps.
- Then add the next Tablespoon and repeat kneading well with the Peeps.
- Knead and stretch the Peeps slime until it is a stretchy slime dough.
- Repeat the process with the other colors of Peeps for different colored slime.
What Just Happened Here?
Slime is created with the chemical reaction between the heat and the water in the Peeps marshmallow. When a Peep or marshmallow is heated, the molecules in the water move away from other molecules.
Cornstarch is a natural thickener you need to create the stretchiness. By kneading, stretching pulling the Peeps slime, the warmth of your hand keeps it pliable. When the slime cools, it hardens. Peeps slime hardens sooner than other slime made with chemicals.
