Edible Sensory and Art Play

After looking at several slime recipes I found one that worked perfect for having a baby that puts everything in his mouth.  Technically it is edible, however I wouldn’t eat it. It gives me a piece of mind for the bits that may get in his mouth.  On top of that, the ingredients were easy to find and it was easy to make.
