Nickelodeon Slime Cup was launched to celebrate athleticism, gaming and Nickelodeon's signature green slime that encourages kids to enjoy bonding with their families while instilling the values of teamwork, sportsmanship, discipline and determination. The slime being a main ingredient to a number of the fun sports-oriented activities, Nickelodeon Slime cup invited kids and their families to play Nickelodeon character themed games of baseball, golf, soccer and more.
My daughter and I joined in the fun at SMX Convention Center in Manila last May 31st, as Nickelodeon's brand of fun activities kept the kids engaged in awesome playtime the whole day.
