Part of the fun in raising Zoey is making things that delight her; I want to create fun, educational activities for her that are made with love and will be loved!
I don’t believe I ever played with slime as a child, but it is super fascinating and fun to play with even as an adult! Adults should mix the slime, or supervise while a child over the age of 6 mixes. This recipe is safer for children to handle, but if they are younger than the age of 6 please supervise and please do not let them eat any!
Let’s make some slime!
- 8 oz of washable school glue (i.e. Elmer’s)
- 1 to 2 drops of liquid food coloring (optional)
- 1/4 cup glitter (optional)
- 1 teaspoons of baking soda
- 2 tablespoons of saline solution (contact lens solution)
- Squeeze the glue into a medium bowl, then stir in the food coloring and glitter if desired.
- Add the baking soda to the glue mixture and stir until smooth.
- Add 2 tablespoons of the saline solution and stir slowly until the mixture forms into a blob and becomes stringy.
- Pick up the slime and work it between your hands, until smooth.
- Enjoy and store in an airtight container so you can enjoy again!
