On the 8th Day of Holiday Fun…

Squeeze up some SLIME! 

The After the Bell crew have a few favorite ways to make slime; one safe way is this glue recipe: 

  • 1/2 TBSP of Baking Soda
  • 1 TBSP of Contact Solution
  • 4 fl oz Elmer’s White school glue (We have used clear glue too to give different effects)
  • Your choice of food coloring plus you can add glitter, foam bits, etc
  1. Find a bowl, cup, or plate to mix your slime in.
  2. Pour out the entire contents of a 4oz of Elmer’s school glue into the bowl.
  3. Add ½ TBSP of baking soda and mix.
  4. After mixing, add your choice of food coloring.
  5. Mix and/or add more food coloring until you get the color you want.
  6. Add 1 TBSP of Contact solution. 
  7. Mix until slime forms and it begins to get harder to mix.
  8. Take the slime out and begin kneading with both of your hands.
  9. If needed, add ¼ TBSP Contact solution to make the slime less sticky.
