We want to share a great activity to do with kids: SLIME! It’s quite easy, although it may take a time or two to get the perfect combo.
- 1 cup Elmer’s glue (can be purchased in big jugs)
- Food coloring
- About a teaspoon of baking soda
- Contact solution (can be purchased from stores like Walmart)
Warning: do not make this anywhere near carpet, because it will be a forever reminder.
First, find containers of some kind to mix it up in and measure in Elmer’s glue. Add some food coloring (to your liking) and stir. Next, add a teaspoon (or a small spoonful) of baking soda. All the while, stir. And stir some more.
Add less than a tablespoon of the contact solution. Stir and stir. When it starts to glob up and you can try to get it in your hands, go ahead. Knead it back and forth. You can add more contact solution if needed, but a fair warning. If you put too much in, it’s irreversible. It’s better to knead it a lot in your hands. If it flops, don’t worry. It’s probably too much contact solution. Go for it again.
Your kids will love stretching and do all kinds of creative things with their slime.
