What you Need

– Baking soda – Food coloring – Elmer’s clear glue – Glitter

Mix 1/4 of a cup of baking soda into two cups of warm water and set aside.

In a second bowl, mix 5 ounces of Elmer's clear glue (it must be the clear glue) and your chosen color (we did purple).

Pour the glue mixture into the bowl of baking soda water.

Then comes the fun...

Work the slime between your fingers to create a slimy, sticky texture.

If you want to be able to pick it up without it sticking to your hands, dip your fingers into the baking soda mixture.

You can also add the slime back into the baking soda water if it loosens up too much.

When your slime starts to get runny again, add more of the baking soda water to turn it back into slime.
