Slime time: Local children stretch summer fun with slime class

Local children came together July 16 to make slime during a class at the Sparkman Civic Center. During the class, participants made three different types of slime to take home. 

Melissa Dalrymple led the class and said she was first inspired to start offering the classes because of her daughter. “I thought it would be something fun a lot of kids would enjoy,” Dalrymple said. “I knew a lot of parents would not want to do it in their houses, so we started doing a trial here, and we rented the room, and it went over great.”

Dalrymple created the different slime recipes with her daughter and her daughter’s friends before the class, and she said the class gives children a chance to explore differences in the slime’s composition and learn basic cooking techniques. 

“The measuring and learning how to mix makes it almost like cooking. They can see that it’s not just mixing the glue, water and saline; you can add color and different things to it,” Dalrymple said. “Some of them are more slimy, while some are more like butter or dough. You can do different textures.” 

Reagan Halbrooks was one of the participants in the class. “I love making slime because you get to play with it. The most fun part is playing with it,” she said.

Sam Reeves was another participant in the class who enjoyed learning how to make the different kinds of slime. “I never thought slime was this fun,” he said. 

Dalrymple said she will be offering additional classes in October and around Christmas. She said she also offers birthday parties or small events, as well. 

“We do different kinds of slime and let them see that all of them are not the same,” Dalrymple said. “We make sure we have all the ingredients and that we are organized.”
