Yields1 ServingTotal Time5 mins

Elmer's Glue website recommends that this project is not appropriate for children under the age of 3 years. Adult supervision is required. And always wash your hands before and after making and playing with the slime. Warning: If large quantities of contact lens solution are accidentally ingested (greater than a tablespoon), seek attention immediately.

 1 - 6 ounce bottle of Elmer's Glitter Glue
 1 ½ tsp baking soda
 1 ¼ tbsp contact lens solution

Empty the full 6-ounce bottle of Elmer's Glitter Glue into a medium-sized bowl.


Add the baking soda to the glue and mix well.


Add the 1 1/4 TBSPs of contact lens solution to the mixture and mix until it gets hard to mix and slime begins to form.


Pick the slime up out of the bowl and begin kneading it with both of your hands. If the slime is sticky, add an additional ΒΌ tbsp of contact lens solution to make it less sticky.


Your slime is now ready to play with! You can add extra items to the slime for an added element. We added shamrock glitter confetti to make gold St. Patricks day slime!

Make sure you store your slime in an airtight container.
