Prep Time: 5minutes
Total Time: 5minutes
Plastic bowl and spoon.
Ziptop bag for storing.
Place mat for enjoying slime.
8ouncebottle Elmer's white school glue
1 1/2 - 2Tablespoonscontact saline solution or slime activator, more as needed
Optional: Food coloring
Place glue in a bowl. If you're adding food coloring, add it now until desired color is reached. Then mix in baking soda.
Add 1 1/2 Tablespoons saline solution or slime activator and mix until combined. Add 1/2 Tablespoon more at a time if it is too sticky. The more you add, the thicker it'll be. The less you add, the slimier it will be.
Stir until you can no longer stir and then kneed with your hands. It will be sticky at first, but keep moving it with your hands until it is no longer sticky and desired consistency is reached.
Pull apart and have fun playing. Store in a covered container or ziptop bag. Best to play with on a place mat.
Use plastic bowls and spoons to make clean up easier.
Make sure to get the color correct before adding the saline. It’s harder to mix in when it begins to thicken.
For thicker slime, add more saline solution. For a slimier texture, add less saline.
Recipe makes about a cup of slime. Can double or triple based on how many kids there are.
