Playdough activity ideas for children and adults Edible fibre slime recipe or fiber slime if visiting from the USA welcome <3 We trialled pysllium husk powder as an alternative to borax which became regulated in the UK during 2007 - EU  substance information. The finished fibre slime or putty behaves somewhat like the traditional, with less movement or fluidity and a natural colouring that makes it hard to tint but we thoroughly enjoyed the cold clammy texture and combining it with regular homemade playdough was a truly fun gloopy time! It's a great ingredient to have in the food cupboard for planned or spontaneous messy play times!
