Hiya, creative friends! If you haven’t jumped on the slime craze yet, let me make it easy for you. This DIY slime recipe is the easiest on the block! If you have kids at home this summer like I do, you need a few fun activities up your sleeve. We used our fail-safe recipe below, and threw a little slime making party to celebrate the arrival of summer. It was so easy, and the kids LOVED it.
Before I show off our easy set-up, here’s my favorite recipe for kid-safe DIY slime.
DIY Slime Recipe Supplies:
- Darice Clear School Glue 5 oz. (1 bottle for each batch of slime.)
- Alphabet Beads
- Darice Extra Fine Glitter
- 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
- Contact Solution
- Mixing Spoon
- Mixing Bowl
All right, let’s make some slime! Pour an entire 5 oz. bottle of Darice Clear School Glue into a small mixing bowl.
Slowly add a few drops of contact solution, mixing while you go. Slime will start to form. Mix a few times with the spoon, then mix by hand. Add additional contact solution until slime is no longer sticky.
It seriously is so fun to play with! And I love that kids can spell words with this fun batch too.
For our slime party, we stocked up on all our favorite supplies from Darice. Pom-poms, googly eyes, sequins, and more! For each child, you just need one bottle of glue and a container to take their DIY slime home in.
We also had several colors of Darice glitter on hand. Slime is way more fun with some sparkle!
One large bottle of contact solution is plenty for multiple batches of slime. I would also suggest having paper towels or baby wipes on hand. Slime sticks to EVERYTHING, so grab some inexpensive aprons if you are worried about clothing.
