Simple Slime Recipe that Works


Are you looking for a Super Simple Slime Recipe that you can make with your kids?  One that actually works. 


Well here's how I make Slime with my kids.

You will need:


White Glue, Clear Glue or Glitter Glue.  I've used them all and they all worked fine. 


Slime Activator

You can make your own slime activator by mixing Half a Teaspoon Borax with a cup of water (250 ml).   That's it!


Food Colouring

Any Lotion


Simple Slime Recipe Instructions:


Depending on how much slime you want to make, you can pour the glue into a bowl.  I just poured the whole little bottle. You can even add glitter glue to the bowl of glue.  




Add food colouring and/or glitter to the mix.  You can play around with colours and ingredients to get different colour results every time. 


slime 1


Add little squirts of Activator at a time (or a teaspoon at a time) and mix with a craft stick or wooden spoon that you don't use in the kitchen.  As you stir you will see the slime slowly start to form as it will start coming together.

Add a little more Activator and Stir.  Repeat this step until slime is formed.


slime 2


Remove slime from bowl and knead with hands.  Add a little squirt of lotion and work it in.




Have fun with your slime. 





If you want to see a mix of slime ingredients like glue, glitter glue, glitter and foam balls, see this fun little challenge video my kids made.


You'll also see what happens to the slime if you add way too much Activator, lol.
