Slime encourages you to be present at the moment. With so many distractions available, such as television, video games, and smartphone apps, anything that may draw a child's attention away from electronics and into the present moment is a godsend for parents. Micro-moments, or moments that hold 10% of a person's focus and consciousness, are provided by the immersive sensory experience.
It's no secret that young toddlers struggle to focus for long periods of time. Playing with slime compels kids to focus on the activity at hand, which is an important skill for them to master. They cannot be sidetracked because the recipes necessitate close attention to detail, chemistry, and math.
