Apparently, making slime with borax is all the rage among the kids today! The kids make slime in school, they make slime with their friends, and they ask to make slime at home. It’s slime time all the time! What time is it? It’s slime time!!!

And making slime with borax is really easy to do! My kids have been home on Spring Break and they’ve been asking us when they can start making slime with borax. So, on a dreary midwest afternoon we made a couple batches of slime.

To make slime you’ll need 3 simple ingredients: water, glitter glue, and borax.

Making slime with borax has become so popular that all the stores around us are sold out of glitter glue! The only way we could get it is to order it through Amazon.

Tales from the Dad Side - Making Slime with Borax

Making Slime with Borax, a Step by Step Guide:

  1. Tales from the Dad Side - Slime in handSqueeze out one bottle of glitter glue into a large bowl.
  2. Dissolve 1 teaspoon of borax in 1 cup of warm water.
  3. Pour the warm water/borax solution over the glitter glue and wait for 20 seconds.
  4. After 20 seconds it’s time to get your hands dirty! Ball up the glue in your hands and begin playing with the slime!

If the slime is still sticky then dip it back in the solution briefly until it is no longer sticky.

Once the slime is ready it’s time to play! We made blue slime and green slime and red slime and we still have a few bottles of glue left.

There will be glitter all over your hands when you’re done playing, and you’ll probably want to have plenty of paper towels ready to clean up any spills that happen in the process. When your kids are done making slime with borax and playing with the slime, then you can store it away in a sandwich baggie to play with later.

I know there are other slime recipes out there. What’s your favorite? Have your kids been asking about making glitter slime?
