Want to make your kid’s next birthday party a hit? Give slime away as the party favor! Slime is so trendy right now. The kids will go home happy and you won’t have to buy all of that cheap plastic stuff that breaks the first time you play with it.
The best part? It’s really easy to make and your kids will have a blast doing it.
In fact, my son Kai has been begging to make slime for months. Finally, he has gotten his chance. Normally, he steers clear of my different DIY posts. This time, he was in on the action – and couldn’t get enough.
There is something magical and relaxing as you stretch and pull the slime in your hands. In a way, it’s like a fidget spinner, without the spinning. It’s a great way to do something with your hands while you’re watching TV or hanging out with your friends.
Here’s how you do it:
- 625 oz of white school glue
- 1 Tbsp. of baking soda
- 2 Tbsp. of contact solution (make sure the contact solution has sodium borate and/or boric acid in the ingredients)
- Food coloring
- Glitter or sequins (optional)
- Small plastic containers with lids (I bought these at the dollar store)
- OL5375 – 2″ Circle Labels
- Container label printable
Step 1: Pour out the entire bottle of glue into a bowl.
Step 2: Pour in 1 Tbsp. of baking soda. Stir together.
Step 3: Add a few drops of food coloring. Stir together.
Step 4: Stir in 2 Tbsp. of contact solution. Your mixture will start to harden.
Step 5: When it gets too hard to stir, pick up the slime and knead it with your hands.
Step 6: (Optional) Knead in glitter or sequins.
Step 7: Separate the slime into the containers.
Step 8: Print out the labels and stick the labels onto the plastic containers.
