Slime Recipes

Classic Slime

To make classic slime, you’ll need to follow the instructions below:

1.       Pour 4 ounces of white glue into a bowl (regular glue that your kids would use a school will do just fine).

2.       Stir in ½ cup of water into the bowl.

3.       Add food coloring if you want slime that’s not white (most kids will prefer colored slime).

4.       In a separate bowl, pour in one cup of water and 1 teaspoon of borax powder.

5.       Mix together the glue mixture and the borax powder mixture.

6.       Now just play with the slime and let some of the excess water stay in the bowl. The slime will get firmer the more you play with it.


Glow-in-the-Dark Slime

Turn off the lights and learn how to make glow-in-the-dark slime.

1.       Follow the same instructions laid out above for making classic slime, but now add a 1/8 teaspoon of zinc sulfide powder or glow-in-the-dark paint to the mix.

2.       Once the slime is created and reasonably firm, you can shine a light on the mixture, so that it captures the light.

3.       Now turn off the lights and your light should glow in the dark!


Storing Your Slime

Slime is a fun activity for kids of all ages, but when your kids are done playing with the slime, they’re going to need a place to keep it safe. Otherwise it will get extremely dirty. Slime is made with glue, which makes it sticky. It will collect dirt, dust, hair and whatever else is lying around your home.


To keep your slime clean and out of the way, just pop it into a Smelly Proof bag. It keeps the air locked in, so your slime won’t dry out over time. Have leftover supplies or ingredients? Store those away in a bag too! When you want to play with the slime again, just open the bag and your slime will still feel like new.

Sign Them Up for Summer Camp

Pack away all of their things in Smelly Proof bags to keep them organized and always keep their foods in a Smelly Proof bag to keep foods fresh and the surroundings odor free.
