What about printmaking
 or screen printing
slime <https://www.homesciencetools.com/article/how-to-make-slime/>, and
ooblek <https://www.livescience.com/21536-oobleck-recipe.html> have been
very popular with our youth. If you want to go STEM, paper circuits
<https://www.makerspaces.com/paper-circuits/> and Snap Circuits
<https://www.elenco.com/brand/snap-circuits/> have a pretty low entry level
to the idea of circuits. You can also make throwies
<https://www.instructables.com/id/LED-Throwies/>. I usually just use tape
instead of the glue. Epoxy would most definitely count as an inhalant.
