Lifesaver Gummies Edible Slime
We finished up my daughters first year of homeschooling and to end our school year out I wanted to make her sensory time extra sweet. She loves playing with slime so I decided to turn that slime into something edible. I came up with this Lifesaver Gummies Edible Slime and it was a HUGE hit, my daughter loved making it and playing with it!
In homeschooling, sensory time is a fun break for the kids but it is always a learning experience. While many think of sensory time being for the little kids, I have found that the older kids love to get involved just as much. My older kids love it when they get to be involved in the process of making something and then playing with it, verses just playing with it. So if you have older kids this is a great one to get them involved on some hands on fun.

How to Make Edible Slime
When you melt any gummy candy it will change it back into its liquid form which is perfect for making edible slime. Then adding cornstarch and powdered sugar to the melted candy gummies you get an tasty edible stretchy slime.
We have not tested this edible slime recipe using anything other than gummy lifesavers, but if you wanted to have more fun you could test out other gummy candy and see which ones work best as a fun science experiment with the kids.

Tips for Making Edible Slime
You will want to have bowls that are perfect for all of your sensory activities, I like this 10 piece set of Glass Bowls with Plastic Lids, they are different sizes and they are Microwave, Freezer and Dishwasher Safe!
You will need the addition of coconut oil to take away some of that sticky texture. I recommend having a bowl of water next to your child when they are playing with the dough because it can get sticky and it will not stick to wet hands as much.
We didn’t mind it sticking to our hands because we were also enjoying eating edible slime off our hands! I am not the biggest fan of the taste of gummy lifesavers yet I couldn’t get enough of this slime. This Lifesaver Gummies Edible Slime is a win win on fun and a tasty treat!
