Slime Recipe

As you might know, I am a photographer and a daycare provider.  Halloween was yesterday and at daycare we made slime. The recipe found below made beautiful, fun stretchy slime.  The children were fascinated by the creation of it and loved patting it, stretching it, rolling it and so on.  It kept them busy for a long time.  What a great way to connect with the children around us. The fun part is that I also loved the experience and the children felt my enthusiasm for the cool, stretchy goo.

1/2 cup of Elmer's Glue

4 Cups of Shaving Cream

A couple tbsp of Saline Solution (Contact Lens Solution)

Baking Soda

a few drops of food colouring

1. Add Elmer's glue, shaving cream and mix thoroughly

2. Add a few drops of your preferred food colouring colour.

3. Add 1/4 tsp baking soda and mix

4. Add 1 tbsp saline, mix and check consistency.  Continue adding saline solution until the substance begins to no longer stick to your bowl.  You know you are finished when you can stretch and play with your slime and it does not stick to your hands.
