5 Ways to Make Slime

Me teaching my cousins how to make slime.

Like a lot of other tweens I like slime. Here are 5 easy ways on how to make slime.

Basic slime:

This slime is super cool to play with and very satisfying. 

Ingredients you will need: white Elmers school glue (has to be white glue), foam shaving cream, liquid Tide laundry detergent (blue Tide or clear Tide and it must be Tide brand to work best), and food coloring of your choice (optional).

Supplies you will need: mixing bowl and a spatula/spoon.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  1. Pour as much Elmers glue as you want into your mixing bowl. Usually you end up with the same amount of slime as how much glue you pour into your bowl.
  2. Add a little bit of shaving cream to the glue. You should not have more shaving cream in your bowl than the glue, or your slime might not turn out. Mix the shaving cream and the glue together with your spatula until they become one substance.
  3. Add a couple drops of your food coloring into your bowl. Mix it in with the glue and shaving cream. Keep adding food coloring until you get the color you want.
  4. Finally, pour some Tide into it’s cap; you don’t need much. Slowly and carefully, pour a tiny bit of Tide into your bowl. Mix it in with everything else. It should start to form into slime. Keep adding small amounts of Tide into your bowl until your slime has formed.
  5. Take your slime out of your bowl and knead it with your hands until it is fully formed.

Tips: don’t eat your slime, don’t put it on clothes or carpet, play with it on hard surfaces only, keep away from children under 4 years old, and Enjoy!

 Clear slime:

This slime is very pretty. It is amazing how clear it is and fun to play with. 

Ingredients you will need: Elmers clear glue, clear liquid Tide laundry detergent, food coloring of your choice (warning: if you color your slime, it may not appear clear).

Supplies you will need: mixing bowl and a spatula/spoon.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  1. Pour as much clear Elmers glue as you want into your mixing bowl. Usually you end up with the same amount of slime as how much glue you pour into your bowl.
  2. If you would like coloring in your slime, add now. Mix the coloring into the clear glue with your spatula. Keep adding coloring into your bowl until you get the color that you want. Warning: if you color your slime, it may not appear clear.
  3. Last, pour some clear tide into it’s cap; you don’t need much. Slowly and carefully, pour a tiny bit of Tide into your bowl. Mix it with your spatula. Keep adding small amounts of clear Tide until your slime has formed.
  4. Take your slime out of your bowl and knead it with your hands until it is fully formed.
  5. Clear slime is usually cloudy at first, this is normal. You need to put it into a container and let it sit without being touched for three days. Then, it should be crystal clear. If not, let it sit for a couple more days. It should still be clear when you stretch it though.

Tips: don’t eat your slime, don’t put it on clothes or carpet, play with it on hard surfaces only, keep away from children under 4 years old, and Enjoy!
