There have been a lot of incidents regarding homemade slime. Many parents have cited that their homemade slime recipes containing borax have caused chemical burns. So we have decided it was time to share a new recipe that does not contain the borax. Many different recipes have been floating around, and we found that this one directly from Elmer’s Glue seems to be the safest alternative to the one containing borax.
What You Will Need:
1/2 tbsp of baking soda
1 tbsp of contact lens solution
4 fl oz Elmer’s White school glue
Your choice of food coloring
What You Will Do:
1. Pour out the entire bottle of a 4oz of Elmer’s School Glue into a bowl.
2. Add ½ tbsp of baking soda and mix thoroughly.
3. After mixing, add your choice of food coloring until you get the color you want.
4. Add 1 tbsp of contact lens solution.
5. Mix until mixture gets harder to mix and slime begins to form.
6. Take the slime out and begin kneading with both of your hands.
7. If needed, add ¼ tbsp of contact lens solution to make the slime less sticky.
*Adult supervision is required; This project is not appropriate for children under the age of 3 years. Always wash your hands before and after making and playing with slime.
