How to make your own DIY SLIME: The Craze That Keeps on Oozing

Slime is a craze that is clearly not going away, so here are some steps of how to make your own slime.

Last year we sold out of PVA glue twice and all because of slime.

So we thought we would offer up a simple recipe  of how to make your own slime that doesn’t include borax powders. Borax is hard to buy over here because it can be harmful to your little ones so please don’t use recipes that include borax powders.

So last year we sold out of PVA glue twice and all because of slime. Slime is a craze that is not going away. So we thought we would offer up a simple recipe that doesn’t include borax powders. Borax is hard to buy over here because it can be harmful to your little ones so please don’t use recipes that include borax powders.

You will need:

  1. 240ml PVA Glue
  2. Teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
  3. Food colouring
  4. 1 table spoon Contact lens solution Bausch & Lomb Sensitive Eyes Saline Solution 500ml
  5. A bowl for mixing
  6. Spoons for mixing and measuring
  7. Glitter and or sequins

 

Slime

It is so simple, first just mix the PVA glue and Bicarbonate of soda.

Add your colours,  if you want to make multi-coloured than make two separate batches, add colour and glitter to both then mix the colours together.  You need to thoroughly mix these together so take your time.

Mix in your contact lens solution until it becomes stringy. If it is still too sticky then add a little bit more contact solution just a drop at a time.

Then its time to get tactile and start kneading your slime until it become thicker and gloopy

Add your glitter and sequins and hey presto!

And that’s it….. ooey gooey slime.

It is really quick to make and can be stored in plastic air tight containers.

Slime is not just for kids either. Lots of adults now have slime for stress relief and make it in relaxing colours and store in a cute pot. Slime replaces the stress ball. You can add scents to it, just make sure it’s safe on your skin.

I have really enjoyed making this with my boys. I have had to buy a lot of containers to support this little hobby of theirs. It doesn’t make to much mess so I don’t mind them making it too much but they love making it in creepy colours. I prefer to use the food colouring gels as I find it makes less mess and is easy for them to squeeze out. Green, red blue are their favourite colours at the moment thank you Marvel Films. With the summer holidays coming way quicker than I would like I’m really happy I have an activity to do with them that doesn’t seem to be getting boring anytime soon!
