The kiddos and I visited our local craft store for a slime making class.
Yes, slime is all the rage right now, and its easy to see why! Even the adults were having fun playing with it. Here is Elmer’s approved slime recipe with some extra fun tid bits!
Elmer’s Slime Recipe
1 1/2 TBSP Baking Soda
3 TBSP Contact lens solution
3 (4oz) Elmer’s glue (12oz total) [Suggest white for clear slime)
Food coloring, glow in the dark paint, sprinkles, beads (any decoration for the slime)
- Find a med to large bowl to mix your slime
- Pour all the glue in the bowl
- Add Baking soda. Mix.
- After mixing, add food coloring if you want to color it.
- Mix and add more color till you get to desired color
