How to make slime?

Slime Ingredients

  • 8-ounce bottle Elmer’s white school glue
  • 1 1/2 – 2 Tablespoons contact saline solution, more as needed (or slime activator)
  • 1 Tablespoon baking soda
  • Food coloring, optional

Add glue and food coloring to bowl. 

Squeeze the bottle of glue into a bowl. Add your food coloring if desired, and stir until combined. Then mix in baking soda.

Mix in saline solution.

Add 1 1/2 Tablespoons saline solution and mix until combined. If it’s too sticky, add 1/2 Tablespoon more solution at a time. The more you add, the thicker it’ll be. The less you add, the slimier it’ll be.

Knead the slime. 

Using your hands, knead the slime until it holds together. It will be wet and gooey at first, but just keep kneading until it all comes together.

Store slime. 

Store slime in a container with lid, or in a zip top bag. The slime is best to play with on a place mat.
