Every kid is talking about slime, Gwen has been bugging me for weeks that we make our own slime. Thankfully, this long weekend got me some spare time to make our DIY Slime using glue, contact lens solution, and Ariel liquid detergent. We didn’t use borax which most slime recipe calls for.
The simplest slime recipe we found requires only 3 ingredients: Glue, Liquid detergent like Ariel, and food coloring. We don’t have food coloring at home so we used Gwen’s styrofoam balls for color.
Later after watching Gwen’s YouTube video, you’ll notice that we failed the first time. Our slime is still runny, maybe we added too much Ariel???
So we added a few drops of contact lens solution and added more glue.
The contact lens solution did the trick! Slime success!
Stretchy and colorful slime!
I hope you can also watch Gwen’s video on YouTube, she really enjoyed making the slime. If you want some bonding time with your kids, buy some glue and a sachet of liquid detergent. Gwen thanked me a dozen times and she thinks I’m the best mommy ever! 🙂
