This has been an absolute hit this weekend with all ages!! Freya and Seb loved making the slime – the glitter has been contained and not spread everywhere and they have played and explored for hours! That’s a win-win-win for me!!
This is an amazingly simple recipe without and borax and uses ingredients that can be purchased easily any where in the world – not hunting for borax or liquid starch which we find hard to find in the UK. Here is a shopping list – I have included affiliate links t make it a bit easier:
Contact lens solution – if you don’t buy this one check it contains boric acid as this reacts with the bicarbonate of soda to help make the slime apparently!
Glitter – any glitter will do!! In the UK I have found B&M home stores has amazing big tubs of glitter for just £1.99
For each 1 cup of PVA glue that you use you will need 1 tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda.
Mix these together in a bowl.
Add desired amount of glitter – you can always add more later 🙂
We added lots!
Next you need to add the contact lens solution – we add about a tablespoon at a time.
Mix well and then add another tablespoon.
Repeat this until the desired slime is achieved.
It will start to come together in a lump on the spoon. If you then touch it with your finger to test if it is sticky. If it is – add some more contact lens solution.
Now you are ready to play!!
You can roll it…
We have had so much fun!!
