Celebrating National Slime Day with Glam Goo
Apparently It's National Slime Day today (March 17th) So we decided to join in the fun by trying out our new Glam Goo kits. I'll hold my hands up and say now, that I as a Mum, is not a huge fan of slime or goo. It's just so messy and sticky and slim((ey)) I guess and so yucky.
My kids on the other hand would totally disagree with me, they LOVE slime so much and often spend hours in bed on You Tube watching other kids make smile or play with slime or roll slime. I can hand on heart say, they're completely hooked on slome. So when I surprised them this morning with these two gorgeous gift sets from Glam Goo, saying they were very excited would be an understatement. I can still hear those screams of excitement now. I was willing to put my dislike of slime to one side for today, seeing as it's National Slime Day, to let them have some fun. I bet they now wish it was National Slime Day, everyday single day.
We received the Glam Goo Deluxe Pack (around £22.99) and the Glam Goo Fantasy Pack (around £9.99). On first impressions, both boxe sets look very pretty and are very attractive to the eye and they look like great value for the money that they cost. They each contain a container of ready made Goo (clear slime), 3 little tubes of slime sequin styled decorations with pretty names like, Cloud Crunch, Daydreams, and Unicorn Tears. There's two small pots of powder formed colour and one small bottle of liquid scent. I was so happy when I saw that there was no slime making involved as each set comes with a nice sized container of it already made up. For me this was a big deal as it meant there wasn't as much mess as I'd previously worried about there being. In fact, there wasn't really any mess at all - result!

We had great fun decorating our Goo and making it Glam. The Goo is very sticky at first but we found as soon as we added our decorations and colour, it soon got a lot nicer and easier to handle. Lily and Ryan loved playing with this so much, so I'm so glad I decided to let them try it out. Seeing them laugh and smile so much fun, together, was a really lovey treat.
Once the Goo is all decorated you can make it into cute fashion accessories with the help of the added pieces in the sets where you just pop you Goo inside them and wear them with pride. Or, you can just keep on playing with it as the fun slimy, gooey Goo that it is.
Ryan loves stretching, pulling and playing with his Goo whilst Lily is happy wearing her creations in her brand new Glitter Purse. Whatever way they enjoy their Goo, it's all good!
Happy National Slime Day 2019 from all of us here at Mummy Of 3 Diaries! x
