Visit Grossmont Center’s Slime Pop Up Bazaar
The monthly Slime Pop Up Bazaar at Grossmont Center puts the “goo” in good time! It’s an afternoon of fun for families—kids can buy handmade slime in a rainbow of colors, and everyone can enjoy music, shopping for craft goods, and eating delicious food. The event takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. the last Saturday of every month, and admission to the Slime Pop Up Bazaar is free.
Slime is Sublime at Grossmont!
Slime is one of the most popular DIY crafts for kids. That is because it requires a unique set of skills that exercise both the right and left sides of the brain.
Making slime involves scientific and artistic techniques. Kids learn about chemistry as they combine ingredients such as glue, baking soda, shaving cream, and contact lens solution to achieve the perfect slimy texture. They also get creative, dreaming up various color palettes and using liquid food color or pigment powder to craft shades from soft pastel to vivid neon. Some kids even add mix-ins to their slime for a special sensory experience. Popular add-ins are glitter, small beads, fragrance oils, clay, gel cubes or pellets, salt, or even little plastic toy figures. The art and science of slime making allows kids to express themselves.
It also allows kids to get their first taste of entrepreneurship. Many young slime makers sell their work, whether it is to classmates or online customers. The Slime Pop Up Bazaar is a place where children can come and sell their work, and get to know other like-minded, slime-loving kids. The atmosphere is fun and friendly, and kids who visit to shop for slime may end up so inspired that they will want to go home and whip up a batch of their own!
