My girls love to make slime. You can check out some of their other slime videos on our YouTube channel. They have videos for Monster & Spider Slime, Christmas Slime, and Incredible Edible Slime. A gallon bottle of white glue goes a long way, so if your children are making many batches of slime, you might want to invest in an entire gallon bottle of glue rather than buying one small bottle after another. You can get small bottles of glue really cheap at back-to-school sales, but the cost of glue can really add up when you aren’t catching those sales. You could substitute white glue in this recipe if you don’t have clear glue which is about twice the cost. It just wouldn’t be quite the same color, but the consistency is still fine.
The consistency of this slime ended up being just perfect for making giant slime bubbles. I have no clue how they did this! It takes special talent, I guess. The best part of this activity is that the girls had to clean off the cluttered kitchen island to practice.
We invested in these clear plastic containers a few months ago because the girls often like to take their slime experiments to their friends. These 4 oz. plastic containers ended up being the perfect size for sharing slime samples with others.
Slime is an easy indoor activity, so making slime is an ideal way to fight the winter blues. I’m sure you’ll want to stock up on slime making supplies before your next snow day. If you’re stuck at home, you might as well have something clever and crafty to do.
Just beware, slime making can apparently be addictive. My daughters’ have containers of slime stashed in every corner of their rooms. There are even containers of slime sitting all over their bathroom and unfortunately, a few stray containers in my kitchen too. Some people hoard purses, or shoes, or books, but my daughters hoard slime.
There are lots of other creative ways you could take this basic slime recipe. You could use another mixture of spices if you prefer another scent. How about Garlic Slime? Is anyone up for that challenge? Just kidding! But wouldn’t Pumpkin Pie Slime be a fun one? If you have any great ideas for a spectacular variation, let us know in the comments. We might be crazy enough to try it!
