I haven’t found a kid who doesn’t love ❤️ slime! I chose to make this recipe (out of hundreds out there) because it’s the easiest with just 3 ingredients.
Note: It only works with Elmer’s glitter glue. If you’re in the USA you can get it from Target, Walmart, Michaels, etc. for about $2.90. I’ve seen it in blue, red, purple, orange and yellow. Little Man picked orange because Halloween. 🎃
If you’ve never made slime before then you should know that it is an art, not a science. Add enough contacts lens solution so that the slime doesn’t stick to your fingers, but not so much that it loses its elasticity. Add in a couple squirts at a time to achieve the perfect consistency.
If you have a child who’s a reader, use the recipe for fun reading practice. If you have a non-reader, then point to the pictures and words to build emergent literacy skills!
