If you’re a cool mom, aunt, uncle or sibling, you have at least one slime recipe in your arsenal. I wasn’t always a cool mom and had to teach myself how to do the coveted slime kit that kids seem to be raving about lately, and I must say, it’s quite fun to make even for adults.
Today I will be showing you how to make an easy diy slime kit that can either be used for a no-hassle slime activity or as a cool diy kids gift!
How to Make Diy Slime at Home
All you have to make slime at home is just some simple materials. Aside from the boric acid and sodium borate, you’ll just be using stuff you probably already have at home like school glue, good coloring, baking soda, and some other school materials.
If you don’t have boric acid and sodium borate, you could just use contact lens solution.
Diy Slime Kit Gift
Preparation time: 10 minutes
disposable plastic plates
contact lens solution (seen note*)
Put all the items into a large box.
Decorate the box as you wish.
To make the slime:
Add the glue to a disposable plastic plate or a bowl.
Add the baking soda and stir until smooth.
Stir in the glitter and food coloring, if using.
Slowly add the contact lens solution, stirring slowly as you pour it, until the slime forms and it begins to get harder to mix.
Take the slime out and begin kneading and stretching it.
If you find it still too sticky, use gloves or add some baby oil to your hands. (see note**)
Knead and stretch until the slime stops sticking to your hands.
Once mixed, store in a jar.
*Contact lens solution must have boric acid and sodium borate in the ingredient list.
**If necessary, keep adding the contact lens solution until desired consistency.
