3 Ingredient Glitter Slime
The kids made slime in the Kids Camp while we were staying at Renaissance Indian Wells Resort & Spa. They had so much fun that we came home and they made a few more batches. It is super easy to make with basic ingredients, it is cheap and kids of all ages can have fun for hours.
You can make it a few different ways. Great way if you have a few kids, so they each know which is their own and can even do their own favorite colors. If you don’t want sparkly slime you can substitute for food coloring instead and make solid colors. I’ve heard of recipes with scents added in too. Not sure if essential oils or extract is used but we didn’t try it.
Different types of slime and hours of fun!
By trial and error the kids figured out to not overuse the contact lens solution. Less is better. Otherwise the slime will be not be a good consistancy. If you mess up you can always start over again. You can also 1/2 the recipe and start small.
For each slime you’ll need the following:
1 1/2 Tbs of Baking Soda (make sure you don’t grab baking powder).
3 Tbs of Contact lens solution (you can buy storebrand on sale at Target for about $2 a bottle).
12 oz of Elmer’s White School Glue. You can buy three 4oz containers.
Either glue that already has color or glitter or food coloring.
Get a medium bowl.
Pour in to bowl 12 oz of Elmer’s glue.
Add 1 1/2 Tbs baking soda and mix.
Add food coloring (if not using glitter color glue).
Mix and ads mow color until you get it the color you want.
Add 3 Tbs of contact lens solution.
Mix and kneed in your hands. YOu can use a cutting board or flat surface too.
If needed add 1/2 Tbs contact lens solution to make slime less sticky.
Store in an airtight container when not in use.
