DIY Slime

This past summer we had our first try, and now it’s spring break, and the Peanut ask for more.

The first time we had done with regular white Elmer’s Glue and with glitter glue.

This time I tried with transparent Elmer’s Glue and added food coloring and glitter, and a little bit of colored glitter glue. This time the slime looks really good, and she has been playing with it for over an hour and it’s still holding really good. I think the trick is to take it out of the water quite quickly.

What you will need for this project:

  • 1 bottle of glue (glitter or white elmer’s glue)
  • 1 cup of hot water and a bottle of glue full of hot water
  • 1 tsp of Borax (you can find this in the cleaning aisle)

 

How to:

  • In a bowl empty the bottle of glue. With hot water fill the bottle of glue and mix with the glue to soften it. Mix the hot water and borax together. Add the Borax mixture to the glue. Mix together, once a good part of the water has mixed with the glue you can start using your hands. Squish it together until the glue starts to form a slimy ball. You will have excess water, you can just drain that out of the bowl and continue playing with the slime.
  • You can store it in a plastic bag, we’ve kept ours in the freezer and the kids take it out when they want to play with it.
