Glittery Monster Slime

2 Sep

Glittery Monster Slime Recipe

What you’ll need:

1 teaspoon Borax Powder

1 and 1/2 cups Water (divided into 1 one cup, 1 half cup)

1/2 cup School Glue–we used white glue, but I would recommend the clear

Any color/s of Food Coloring

Any color/s of Glitter

2 bowls, 1 mixing device (I like forks), measuring cup & 1 teaspoon, plastic baggies or storage container

How to make:

Fill a small bowl with 1 cup of water and add 1 teaspoon of Borax powder. Mix until the Borax is dissolved and set aside.

Pour glue into a different medium sized mixing bowl and add 1/2 cup of water.  Pick a color & add about 4 drops or until desired color is reached ( It will darken & it doesn’t take much).  Stir in & then add as much or as little glitter as you want.  Mix in again.

Add the Borax/Water mixture (small bowl) to the colored/glittery glue mixture and mix, mix, mix.  It will start sticking together, getting shiny & making a ball.

If there’s any excess water, knead the mixture until it becomes more firm and dry.  We didn’t have this problem.

Dump it out & play!  When you’re all done playing with it, keep it stored in a plastic bag or some other air tight container.
