What you will need for this recipe
- Clear PVA glue
- Contact lense solution
- Food colouring (we use gels)
- Bicarbonate of soda
- Lollipop sticks
- Some jars or pots
We did not use certain amounts for this recipe, we just filled the bottom of a jar with about an inch of PVA glue and then added the rest of the ingredients as needed, using a small amount at a time and adjusting as needed. We used Brian Clegg Clear PVA glue, as after months of searching for clear glue we finally found this one.
Next we added the food colour. We always use gel as its much more concentrated and gives a more vibrant colour. You only need to use a really tiny bit!
After we got the right shade colour we added the bicarbonate of soda. We used about a teaspoon but you can alter this as needed.
For this batch of slime we used contact lense solution as a borax substitute but for our next slime blog post we have ordered some borax to try out so we will let you know how this turns out very soon!
Key to good slime is the kneading process so work the slime for as long as needed until you get a good texture (not too sticky and not too wet).
Here the girls are working their slime and really enjoying it. Slime is such a great sensory experience.
You can see here how the clear glue gives such an amazing effect.
The girls just love making slime and ask to do it almost everyday!
They are looking forward to the next batch already and we cant wait to see how it turns out with the borax recipe.
We hope you enjoyed our rainbow slime and would love some feedback or if you have any ideas for the next batch, let us know!
