As some of you may know I work in a childcare center. During the school year I am a VPK teacher and during the summer, a camp counselor. I am always trying to come up with something fun to do to pass the time on the days they are in house. This week we made slime! Not going to lie I was a little worried about the mess and not totally looking forward to it. Partially because a few weeks ago we made marshmallow playdough and well that was a mess! Slime however was fun and easy! 

Here’s what you need: 

2 (4oz) bottles of Elmers glue

1Tbsp of baking soda 

2 Tbsp of eye contact solution 

Any food coloring you would like 


  1. Mix glue with baking soda until well mixed 

       2. Add in as much or as little food          coloring as you’d like 

3. Add in contact solution, you should be able to see it start “sliming” up but you may need to add a little bit more to get it less sticky. 

When finished it should look like this 

You can also add glitter, star confetti etc I also saw clear glue at Michaels which I thought would be cool with stars and glitter! Endless options and the kids are bound to have fun! 

Have you made any homemade crafts or recipes this summer? If so, please share!
