    is there any way to make it not dried out when it dries out?

    To rehydrate slime, we just add a little warm water to a bowl (maybe a few tablespoons, depending on the size of the slime) and then knead the slime in it until it absorbs all the water. It will usually fall apart first and seem to be ruined, and then it comes back together. With the eraser slime being more like a putty, we would just add a drop or two of warm water and do the same thing, and then keep adding until it's nice again. But honestly, this was more of a novelty, something fun to make and use for a little while. It probably won't last very long.
