Honey is a great helper for sweetening tea and rejuvenating skin, but the sticky stuff has a playful side, too. If you’re running out of summer activity ideas, it might be time to break the first rule of dinnertime and play with your food. Our local, raw and unfiltered honey is here to help you get creative again–and keep the kiddos occupied.
If they’re getting antsy during those long summer days, our busy bees can bust the boredomwith some edible honey slime. Kids love the gooiness, and you’ll love knowing it’s virtually mess-free and safe to eat if it ends up in the little ones’ mouths. It only takes a few minutes to create, but you’ll have hours of homemade playtime to look forward to. The best part? All it takes is three ingredients that are probably already in your pantry.
- ¼ cup local hive honey
- ¾ cup corn starch
- 1-2 Tablespoons oil
- In the microwave, heat the pure honey in a large bowl for 45 seconds.
- Add the cornstarch two tablespoons at a time until combined with the honey.
- Knead until the slime is completely cohesive and not sticky. If it is still sticking to your fingers after two minutes of kneading, add a bit more cornstarch.
- Add the oil, as needed, until the slime is stretchy and not sticky.
