It is important to note that this recipe includes borax meaning adult supervision is required. Since borax is a skin irritant you should avoid letting children have direct contact with the undiluted borax.

We also suggest you read up on the facts about slime that contains borax and decide if it is something you are comfortable with.

Once mixed with the other ingredients it is relatively safe so long as children don’t try to eat it, which is why we only suggest this slime for kids who are a little bit older.

If you do decide to make this slime adult supervisor is strongly encouraged even after the fact when your child is simply playing with it!

Why We Encourage Slime Making!

Most kids love making slime!

In fact, I can’t think of a child that I’ve ever met that didn’t like slime, meaning it’s almost a sure thing that your kiddo is going to absolutely love it!

Slime making is a good hands-on activity that is very entertaining, engaging and easy activity for kids to partake in.

Not only that but the ingredients are CHEAP!

And the same ingredients can often be used over and over again with a slight twist each and every time resulting in a totally different type of slime.

We also encourage slime making because it is a great way for parents to connect with their kids!

Lastly, once completed it gives children a real sense of accomplishment!

Educational Benefits of Making Slime

Slime making can be quite the learning experience for your kiddo. Think of it as an at-home science experiment of sorts. 

In following the recipe your kiddo gets the benefit of learning to following instructions, learning how to measure out ingredients, which involves using math – numbers, counting, etc.

They also get to observe how science works and understand how the mixing of different ingredients causes chemical reations, resulting in something totally different forming.

There are many other educational benefits of partaking in at-home slime making that we haven’t covered here.

Conclusion

Slime making is a wonderful activity nearly all kids enjoys. It is not only fun and captivating for children but also educational and offers a real sense of accomplishment!

Not only that but after the activity is over your child has a new ‘toy’ they can play with. 

Lastly, kids will enjoy this activity time and time again by simply changing things up and tackling a new slime recipe adding additional nuances to the experience.

If you are choosing books for a 4 year old on your shopping list here are some tips that may help you find just the right book for a child of this age. When choosing a book for 4 year olds here are some things you need to consider.

What Makes a Good Book for a 4 Year Old?

Most 4 year olds are just learning to read and may read anywhere from just a few words to complete sentences depending on a child. This means that you may need to read with or completely to your child, so choosing the right book is important.

  • Look for books that have good illustrations that will allow the child to visually get a good idea of the story.
  • In most cases you will want to choose a book with a shorter story and short simple sentences. Books with rhymes are especially appealing to children this age.
  • Choose a story that will appeal to the child’s imagination or will help then learn facts about a subject they are interested in.
  • If you are the one reading the book to a child look for books you and the child will both enjoy it.
  • Books where some words are repeated often are best for children of this age

What Level Books Should a 4 Year Old be Reading?

If your child is four years old they are likely either beginning to read or are just getting ready to read. This means that your child will be able to recognize all or most of the letters of the alphabet and know what sounds the letters make. They may also be able read a few simple words, but their reading will be limited to a few words or books they have actually memorized.

While a few 4 year olds may be able to read simple books with little help, most children this age will need to read or will be able to read with the help of a parent.

How Can I Help My 4Year-Old Learn to Read?

There are several things you can do to help your 4 year old learn to read. Here are some things you should be doing.

  • Start reading to your child at birth or even before. Hearing the cadence The written words will help children read sooner. It also develops an interest in reading from a young age.
  • Read to your child every day, pointing out simple words to them as you read. When you read a book with repetitive words (such as One Fish, Two Fish) read the repetitive word a few times and thereafter have the child read the word each time you come to it. Seeing, hearing, and reading the word repeatedly will help the child recognize the word.
  • If you child is sounding out letters try and have them read simple words like bat, cat, hat, bug, rug, mug on their own while sounding them out and giving them a lot of praise for their efforts.
  • Let the child tell you their favorite part of a story, encourage them to sing songs, learn rhymes and more. The better vocabulary your child develops the easier it will be for them to learn to read.

What Form of Book is best for a 4 Year Old?

Board books and hardback books with thicker pages are the best type of books for 4 year olds since the books hold up better and the pages are easier to turn. Paperbacks may be ripped easily especially if the child looks at or tries to read the book on his own.

Hopefully these reading tips and the selection of books we have suggested will help your child begin his own interest and adventures in reading.

Whoever manages to knock the other person’s spinner down is the winner of the game. The toys are great for enabling kids to play with them wherever they are. 

Having someone like George Sampson introduce these toys to the world will give them a huge boost in popularity. 

This is especially since he was showing everyone how to use the toys. He even threw in some of his own spinning methods and tricks that he had developed on his own. That’s when it became clear to people that George had really been trying these toys out personally. Some kids who were at the event got the chance to use the Battle Striker sets and play with George. 

Mega Brands was very pleased with how successful the launch was. They also paid a special thanks to George Sampson for getting on board and supporting them. 

If you were looking for more unique spinner toys that have a modern edge to them, the Battle Striker sets could be worth considering. There are a range of sets available that are a ton of fun for kids to play with in groups for hours.
