HOW TO MAKE PINK GLITTER SLIME
Guys, I see slime everywhere!! It’s all over Pinterest, there are kits at the toy store, and there is even a DIY slime making display at Michaels craft stores. I gotta admit, the first time I heard about it I didn’t really get it. But then I made some pink glitter slime and that quickly changed. My daughter loves the stuff - she’ll play for hours with the slime. If you’re new to the slime world, the texture of slime is very different than homemade playdough and therefore provides a different sensory experience. It makes snapping sounds as little bubbles get trapped when you fold it over. You can stretch it, tie it in knots, swirl it around. It’s pretty cool stuff!
So if you haven’t made slime before with your kids, the process is pretty easy. I’ll walk you through it with step-by-step instructions below. It only takes about 5 minutes to make. The first step is to download and print out the science experiment worksheet from the free resource library. Your child can use this worksheet to record their observations while they make the slime.

GLITTER SLIME SUPPLIES:
To make pink glitter slime, you only need a few simple things. I’ve linked to them on amazon using my affiliate links below.
2 bottles Elmer’s Glitter Glue
1 Tbsp baking soda

** Elmer’s glitter glue comes in a variety of colors so you don’t just have to make pink slime. There’s a great selection of colors you can buy on amazon:
MAKE YOUR GLITTER SLIME IN MINUTES!
First, add all the glitter glue to a bowl.
Next, add in 1 Tbsp baking soda in the center of the glue.
Add 2 Tbsp saline solution or contact lens solution.
Start mixing with a spoon. When that gets hard to mix, start mixing your hands. This part is gooey and sticky but it doesn’t take long for the slime to come together. You’ll know it’s done when it’s no longer sticky.
Wash your hands and you’re ready to go! You can store the slime in a plastic bag or air-tight container.
Now comes the fun part! You can pinch it, twist it, tie it in knots. It’s sooo fun!
SIDE NOTE: I have read that slime can be hard to get out of carpet, so we decided to make a rule that Lou can only play with it at the kitchen table. Also, I make sure to tie her hair back before she’s playing just to avoid a possible “gum stuck in hair” kind of incident. I suspect if this did happen, I could just use a little coconut oil to get it out.
*Kids should always be supervised while playing with slime. Especially the younger ones. And (obviously) kids should be told not to put it in their eyes, mouth, or hair, etc.
I hope you enjoyed learning how to make your own homemade glitter slime! It’s really easy and sooo fun for kids to play with! Do you think you’ll try it? If so I’d love to see. Share a photo and tag me @madebyandi on instagram.
