When they’re not busy with school, Sofia Hallé Elizondo, 10, and her eight-year-old brother Sebastian spend a lot of their time in their kitchen.

But they’re not making what you would expect — they’re making slime.

“I went to a party at my friends, I came back and I started showing it [slime] to my family, and they said, ‘Oh it’s nice’ … We saw Shark Tank and then we said, ‘Why not start a business of slime?'” Sofia said.

So that’s exactly what they did.

They went out, bought a variety of different ingredients and started making slimes.

Meanwhile, their parents pitched in to help with the logistics.

“My husband started the website, I started the Facebook and Instagram page for them and they make them and sell them now,” said their mother Alejandra Elizondo.

The business has only been around for the last few months, but the slimes are selling.

At the moment, two local depanneurs carry the brand, called Soso Slimy, and the rest is sold through word of mouth and their website.

Their mom says the business is teaching the kids about the value of a dollar.

“Sometimes, they work for hours and they get a little bit [of money] and now they’re getting to understand to work hard and get some money,” said Elizondo.

But more than the money, the family says the best part of this business venture is doing it together.
