Somehow I’ve managed to stay out of the slime making world until recently. I’m not a completely “un-fun mom.” I’ve taken my son to the local craft store to make some during a “make ‘n take” event. He’s made slime at school and camp. Both kids made some slime during a Cub Scout event in February (which was super sticky and hit the trash immediately after thankfully). But during a trip to the craft store with my 4 year old daughter, I caved and purchased pink glitter Elmer’s glue specifically to make slime with.

Step 2 Add baking soda to the glue. Stir.

Step 3 Add contact lens solution and stir.

Step 4 Use your hands to knead the mixture. If it’s sticky (ours was very sticky), squirt in a little more of the contact lens solution. Knead the slime mixture.
