Are your kids obsessed with making slime? Here is a recipe for glow in the dark slime that will make a decent sized batch for pennies on the dollar for what you would pay for the premade stuff. This would make a great summer break or rainy day activity for kids. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
You Will Need
- a 5oz container of clear glue (affiliate link)
- 1 cup hot water
- ⅓ tsp borax powder (affiliate link)
- ¼ cup room temperature water
- 1 Tbsp glow in the dark paint (affiliate link) – Use less if you want more of a clear slime that has a dull glow
- Sequins or confetti (optional)
- In a medium-sized bowl, pour 1 cup of hot water.
- Add ⅓ tsp of borax and mix well.
- In a second bowl or container, fill with ¼ cup room temperature water.
- Squeeze an entire bottle (5 oz) of clear glue.
- Pour in your glow in the dark paint and swirl it around until it is mixed well.
- If you will be adding confetti or sequins(affiliate link), add them now. Glow in the dark or star-shaped add-ins would make the slime look really cool!
- Pour your entire water/glue bowl into the first bowl of borax and water. You will immediately see the slime begin to form.
- Let it sit for about 30 seconds to a minute and wipe out your empty bowl.
- Pick up your slime from the water and borax solution and transfer it to your empty bowl. It will be sticky at first, and that’s okay! Knead it, and it will thicken up and finish forming. If your slime is still way too sticky, splash a bit of the borax water on it and continue to knead.
- Don’t forget to store your glow in the dark slime in an airtight container.
