Making Spring Inspired Slime with The Kids

Make sure you follow my slime board on Pinterest for more ideas and don’t forget to save the pin for later.

We are coming to the end of our slime month, only one more to go after this. This week’s slime is a spring themed one to celebrate the beginning of spring. This slime uses the same recipe that we used last week to make the Pokémon themed one.

You will need:

  • Elmer’s glue
  • Shaving foam
  • ½ tsp. of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • Optrex eye drops
  • Glitter
  • Flower beads

In a bowl add the whole bottle of glue. We used clear glue for this particular slime.

You can add the shaving foam; we added 5-10 pumps of it into ours because YC wanted to use it. However once in it gave the clear slime a white appearance and this would have been a great one to leave clear.

Then add ½ tsp. of bicarbonate of soda. Remember you need to add one 1/2 tsp. for every bottle of glue that you use.

Pour in your glitter and flower beads and give it a good mix.

Next add the eye drops a little bit at a time. Keep mixing it together until it no longer sticks to your fingers. Even though we have made this type of slime many times, we didn’t add enough eye drops before we took it out of the bowl. This meant that YC and I spent ages trying to peel the glue off of our hands.

When it is ready take it out and knead it a bit.

YC and I loved playing with this and experiment; we tried to see how thin we could make it go by stretching it out.
