Slime Recipe for Special Needs Kids

Borax Glue Slime for sensory therapy

Using the tried and true glue/borax/water recipe, we had mad the perfect therapy slime! We could bury small objects in it, Chewy would use his fine motor skills to take them out. The slime was cold and a strange texture, so his sensory issues could be addressed at the same time, not to mention, this slime has no mess! It comes off clean nearly everything it touches (not carpet and some knit clothing, so still be careful around those!).
