Disclaimer: This Glitter Slime is not edible
If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know my twin girls love slime, so I thought I’d show my recipe on how to make glitter slime. But this isn’t just any regular slime, because after some non-stop singing of “Let It Go,” we came up with this Frozen-inspired slime to help cool us down for a fun summer activity. With the new Frozen II movie coming out later this year, we wanted to make sure we perfected this recipe before the release.
If you don’t know how to make glitter slime, you might get surprised at the list of materials. First you mix together water and glue, but not just any glue. I used Elmer’s Clear Glue (affiliate link) and it’s great for slime. Then you add baking soda and the secret ingredient: eye contact solution. This is the activator and magically turns the glue into a thick consistency. How thick the slime is depends on how much solution you add, so just add the contact solution as you go. You can tell from my girls that they have plenty of experience in making slime, but practice does make perfect!
For this special glitter slime, I found some cute blue glitter and snowflakes to really remind us of ice cold days and get us excited for Frozen II. But for the meantime, we’ll spend our summer making some batches of slime, and now that you know how to make glitter slime, I hope you can enjoy this activity with your family too!
- 1½ cups clear glue
- ¼ cup water
- 1½ tsp. baking soda
- ⅓ cup contact solution
- 1-3oz glitter pouches
- In a container add glue and water. Mix with a spoon.
- Add baking soda and mix.
- Then add contact solution by increments mixing each time.
- The contact solution acts as the activator and hardens the glue into the thicker slime consistency so there's no exact measurements. You just have to keep on playing with the glue and adding contact solution until it thickens to the consistency you want.
