Now that the weather is getting warmer, there's nothing more satisfying that making a messy, fun DIY sensory project—outside! This one calls for (optional) glitter, so brush off that outdoor furniture and get ready to make slime! Guest blogger Amy Rios from the blog A Beautiful Friendship is going to walk us through it. Read on for her account below:
Thank you Andrea for letting me share Micheals' Kid-Friendly Slime recipe with your readers. This slime recipe is super easy and only takes about 15 minutes. Most of the ingredients you probably already have at home.
- Kitchen Scale
- Measuring Cups
- Mixing bowls
- Craft Stick
- Acrylic paint
- Decorations for the slime such as glitter, pom poms, googley eyes, sequins, etc.
- 5 oz Washable School Glue (clear)
- 1/4 cup of Baking Soda
- 2 Cups of warm water
- Measure out 5 oz of glue into your mixing bowl.
- Measure out 2 cups of water and 1/4 of baking soda. I try to make as few dirty dishes as possible so I mixed the baking soda into the water inside the measuring cup.
- Slowly pour the baking soda solution into the glue, mixing with the craft stick. You will see the slime starting to form immediately. There will be a lot of baking soda solution left over.
- Take the slime out and knead it until it is dry and a good slime consistency.
- Stretch it out and punch a hole in it. Mix in your add ins. And you are done! Hope your little one enjoys it!
