For those parents who think that the slime phenomenon was a craze from just last year, they might want to think again. That’s because many children of all ages are still obsessed and fascinated with the slime-making process so much so that there’s a new contest for it. In fact, new reports say that Elmer’s Glue is kicking off a slide-making contest for kids, teens and tweens from all over the country to see who can make the most innovative and creative slime recipe videos.
Up until this point, many kids and tweens have been making their own clips that are uploaded to sites such as YouTube, Vevo, and even the video sharing apps Musical.ly. Elmer has taken things one step further by encouraging kids to make a video for their chance to win several different prices.
