- 2/3 Cup White Glue
- 1 TSP Baking Soda
- 1/4 Cup Water
- 2-3 Cups Shaving Cream
- 1.5 TBSP Contact Lens Solution **Important: your brand of contact lens solution must have boric acid and sodium borate in the ingredient list. This is what interacts with the glue to form the slime.
- Liquid Food Coloring
Add your white glue to a bowl.
Add you water and baking soda and then mix.
Add your shaving cream and mix. The more shaving cream you add, the fluffier it will be. You may need to add more contact lens solution if you make it with 3 cups.
Add your food coloring until you are satisfied with the color. Mix.
Now slowly add in your contact solution.
We like to add in 1 tablespoon, knead for 5 minutes and then add in the 1/2 tablespoon after kneading for some time. The slime will be very sticky when you’re kneading – and that’s normal!
If you find it still too sticky – add some baby oil or lotion to your hands. You can also add in more contact lens solution if you still find it too sticky. Just a little bit at a time. We like to add an extra teaspoon at a time until it stops sticking. If you add too much the slime may become too hard and won’t be as stretchy to play with.
