Slime is a fun sensory toy for toddlers and even older children. It is fun to feel and play with. Adults can enjoy the slime too, they can play with it at work to de-stress and spark creativity. Find out how to make slime easily, with only a few ingredients! Below are directions for blue slime. However, you can make whatever color you want; simply choose color and glitter that you prefer.

What You Will Need:

Liquid Starch (This is usually used for ironing when it isn’t making slime!)

Water

Blue Glitter

Blue Food Coloring

Elmer’s Clear Washable Glue

Water

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl, mix ½ cup of warm (it will mix better if the water is warm) water and ½ cup of the clear washable glue. Use an electric hand mixer for this part.

Next add 4-6 drops of food coloring and glitter. Use 2 tablespoons of glitter, feel free to add more or less.

In a separate large mixing bowl, add ½ cup of liquid starch. Slowly add the water/glue mixture into the liquid starch bowl. Use hands to mix all the ingredients well.

After the mixture has turned to slime, place slime into a dry container and let it set for another 30-40 minutes. Then have fun playing with your blue glitter slime.  It will last for several days!
