Glitter slime as easy as 1-2-3!
Looking for a fun activity to do with your kids, or even your students at school? How about some homemade glitter slime!? This 3 ingredient recipe will cure any rainy day or case of boredom! While neon colored slime might be cool, this glitter slime is AWESOME!! Here’s the fastest, easiest, mess-free slime recipe that you will ever find. The fact that it is glittery is an added bonus!
Below is a list of the ingredients you’ll need, I’ll include a link to purchase them online with Amazon as well. These items can sometimes be harder to find in stores depending where you live, Amazon Prime to save the day!!
- Elmer’s Glitter Glue (one bottle per batch of slime) – HERE on Amazon
- 1 Cup of warm water
- 1 Tablespoon water
- 1 Tablespoon Borax – HERE on Amazon
- Large bowl
- Mixing spoon
- Measuring cup
- Fill your measuring cup with 1 cup of warm water
- Grab your 1 tablespoon of Borax and mix into warm water in measuring cup, stir well and set aside
- In your large bowl empty an entire bottle of Elmer’s Glitter Glue + 1 tablespoon water. Don’t worry if there’s some glue left in the bottle, it’s no big deal!
- Mix the tablespoon of water and your Elmer’s Glitter Glue together with a mixing spoon. TIP: use a spoon from your silverware drawer, when we used a wooden spoon it stuck like crazy and was hard to get off!
- Once mixed, grab your cup of Borax and warm water that you set aside. Slowly start adding it into the large bowl with your glue, you won’t need the entire cup! Only add in enough of the borax slime activator to make your glue start to form into slime. Adding too much Borax will turn your slime completely hard!
- Here’s the fun part, especially for your kiddos. Using your hands, start to knead the slime until it becomes workable and stretchy. If you find your slime to be too sticky still, keep adding Borax little by little.
- You’ll know your slime is complete once you can stretch it out and roll it into a ball with your hands, without too much stick or mess! See the photo below for our completed slime, notice the difference between this photo and the one above.
- Store your slime for up to a week, usually, in a plastic bag or plastic container with lid. I recommend tossing it out once it starts to get funky though, it’s super inexpensive to make another batch once you purchase the ingredients to start!
Have fun with your slime! My girls love to grab cookie cutters and create shapes with their glitter slime, check it out. For easy saving of this recipe, click ANY photo on this post to pin to your Pinterest!!
