Slime Time

Slime is load of fun and easy to make at home!

You will need:

  • 1 bottle of Elmer’s 6 oz
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • 1  1/2 TBSP of Contact lens solution. **Important: your brand of contact lens solution must have boric acid in the ingredient list. This is what interacts with the glue to form the slime.
  • Optional: Add 2 TBSP of water to the glue if you’d like a stretchier slime.

Step 1

Get a bowl to mix your slime ingredients in.

Step 2

Pour your entire 6 oz Elmer’s Glitter glue into the bowl.

Step 3

Add your baking soda and mix in thoroughly.

Step 4

Slowly add in your contact lens solution (reminder: your contact lens solution should contain boric acid or your slime will not form). Add it in slowly and mix if possible so that you can adjust and ensure you do not add too much.

Step 5

Now mix until your slime forms and begins to harden. Take it out and knead, knead, knead. You may be surprised how much you need to knead to really make the slime form. If it’s not the desirable consistency keep kneading. If you find it to still be too sticky, add a little bit of lotion or baby oil to your hands.
